Tape games set up and clean up quickly, which means I do them a lot! Around Halloween, it’s fun to play on tape spider webs. Because tape spider webs practically begs to be played on, they are a great way to incorporate fun ways to move and learn!
Set up Spider Web Game
- Construction paper
- Tape (here we used masking tape)
- Markers, Googly eyes, etc… to decorate the “shape bugs”
We made shape “bugs” to trap on our web. I cut a variety of shapes from construction paper, and we drew faces on them.
It was a beautiful day, so we played outside. I created a partial spider web from masking tape. We set our spider web tape game up as a shape game, but you could also use it to practice letters, numbers, sight words, or colors.
We played a couple of ways. The first version of the game, I placed the shapes throughout the web. We would then run through the web, picking up our shapes and calling them out as we went along. Because I used a variety of colors we also worked in color practice as well.
Another fun way to play is to stick the shape bugs into the web. Put a piece of tape on the back of the bugs, and let your child stick them onto the web. And then go rescue the bugs! The game can pretty much last as long as the paper bugs!
