Are you afraid of spiders? They are definitely not my favorite creatures in the world! But this spider activity is super cute and FUN! Grab some spider toys or mini erasers, your favorite dice and have fun with this free printable spider web roll and count math activity. Perfect for fall! (This seems to be the time of year that my basement constantly have new spider webs appearing! Yuck!)
Materials Needed for the Spider Web Roll and Count:
I grabbed both the plastic spiders and the spider mini erasers in the Target dollar area. You can also find plastic spiders here.
To prep: Print and laminate the spider web roll and count mat (download below). You can also use a dry erase pocket to hold the mat if you can’t laminate it.
To use: Roll your die, write the corresponding number or number word with the dry erase marker and show the correct number of spiders. Super easy!
We love this fun set of foam dice from Lakeshore and Learning Resources has a similar set that would work great as well. I prefer these dice sets over a regular 6-sided die because you can practice more numbers by using a 10 or 20-sided die.
The small spiders are great for working on fine-motor skills!
If your child needs more of a challenge, use two dice, add them together and show the answer.
Pair this activity up with some fun spider books for a math and literacy activity!
