Step Two

Glue together your three ice lolly sticks as shown below. You can use a hot glue gun for quick results if you have one if not PVA glue works perfectly well!

Step Three

Once they are dry cut yourself a long piece of string, choose any colour you want and allow little ones to be as creative as possible. Tie one end to the middle of your ice lolly sticks as shown below.

Step Four

Wrap your string around each ice lolly stick. Let children wrap it any way they choose. This is great practice for their fine motor skills. They’ll be so proud of their finished Halloween decoration.

Once you have finished wrapping, tie your string to the end of one of the ice lolly sticks and if you want to you can leave enough string to tail off. That way you can hang it up.

Step Five

Finally, add a spider to your web! You could use sticker spiders, plastic ones, or even make one from pom poms! The ideas are endless.
