Families had a chance to listen to a wonderful classic story The Very Busy Spider and learn a silly sing-a-long called "There’s a Spider on the Floor."

Families also observed a live tarantula in a terrarium and recorded their observations with writing and drawing materials.

In addition, families could make two art projects. One option was to hole-punch paper plates and weave webs with black yarn, increasing the early learners’ fine motor skills. The other option was to marble paint spider webs using black paper and white paint.

Early Learning families also had fun engaging in gross motor activities in the gym, such as an obstacle course and a spider web pom pom toss.
