How to Play
Each spider has a number on it. The student picks up a spider and looks at the number. Encourage them to say the number aloud. Then they clip the correct number of clothespins onto the spider creating legs. Repeat until all the spiders have clothespins on them.
These are perfect to use during October, for Halloween, during your spider unit, or even for your nursery rhyme unit to go along with Little Miss Muffett or The Itsy Bitsy Spider.
You can store the spider in a bag or container with the clothespins, so the game is always ready to go or be safely put away for next year.
