This Sticky Spider Web Halloween Obstacle Course is a fun challenge for kids of all ages!
Kids will love this creative obstacle course idea, where they’ll get to place tiny spiders on the sticky web! This activity is perfect to use in the classroom, in the therapy room, or at a Halloween party at home!
What you’ll need:
-Clear packaging tape
-Plastic toy spiders
What to do:
Check out the video of this Halloween obstacle course here.
Place all of the plastic spiders on the floor at the start of the obstacle course. Create a spider web between two chairs using crepe paper. Be sure to leave enough space at the bottom of the web for kids to slide/crawl through on their bellies. Place the balance beam after the crepe paper spider web. Tie a rope between two stationary objects, low enough that kids can hold onto it and pull themselves, hand over hand, while sitting on a scooter board.
Create a spider web by wrapping the clear packaging tape around a hula hoop with the sticky side facing out. Hang the hoop at the end of your obstacle course with a few pieces of packaging tape.
Have kids start at the plastic spiders, choosing one and balancing it on their belly as they crab walk to the crepe paper web. Have them hold their spider in their hand as they crawl or slide under the web to get to the balance beam. Have them creep across the beam to get to the scooter and rope.
Next, kids will sit on the scooter (criss cross applesauce), pulling themselves forward using their hands on the rope.
When they get to the sticky spider web, have them stick their plastic spider to the sticky tape. Begin again and repeat until all of the spiders are on the web!
