What You’ll Need:
-Watercolor paint and paintbrush
What to Do:
Show the child how to stick two Wikki Stix to their paper to make an X in the middle of the page. Then, add two more Wikki Stix, intersecting with the first two.
Take two more Wikki Stix and stick them together to create a circle. Place the circle on top of your intersecting WIkki Stix to create your web.
Make sure to press hard all of the Wikki Stix to make sure that they are stuck to the page very well.
Get some watercolor paint on your brush and then blot the brush on a paper towel or tissue to remove some of the water. Paint all over the spaces between the spider web, repeating the process of blotting water off of the brush each time. It’s important to make sure that there isn’t too much water on the page as you paint!
When all of the spaces are completely filled in, place a tissue or paper towel over top of the whole painting, pushing it down to remove any extra water.
Then, have the child peel off the Wikki Stix, revealing their resist painted spider web!
Cut out a spider shape and glue on some craft eyes. Glue your spider to the web!
