A Brighter Future for Everyone


Activity 1 and 2 Maths webs

Mathematics, Expressive Arts and Design


Part 1:

Sing Incy Wincy Spider our song of the week (see link below).


Today we are going to make a spider’s web – you can be as creative as you like! We used felt tip pens and paper (see below). You could use these or try another idea below:

  • Use masking tape, twigs, string, chalk, pencil, crayons, paint it outside with water.

Next find something small that you can pretend is a fly such as:

  • Scrunched up paper/ foil
  • Coins
  • Pompoms
  • Milk lids


Part 2:

Throw your fly and if it lands in the web you get 1 point. The first person to reach 5 points wins.

You could ask your child to record their points on paper.


To extend this activity you could have fun changing the rules for example:

  • 1 point if you land on the web lines and 0 points if you land in the gaps.
  • If your web has different colours then each colour could be worth a different number of points.
