Download and print spider pattern, attached above, onto standard printer paper. Flip glittered card stock over and trace spider's outline onto the paper's back using transfer paper. Using scissors, cut spider out. Tip: Make multiple spiders using different colors of card stock so several guests can play at once.
Make Spider Web
To make a spider web on the wall, begin by cutting 4 lengths of yarn about 3 feet long and attach them to the wall in a crisscross pattern using glue dots to secure the ends (Image 1). Beginning at one piece of yarn and using glue dots at each cross point, adhere another piece of yarn in a circular pattern, securing at each cross point (Image 2). Continue with the glue dots in the same pattern, using a separate piece of yarn for each new part of the web (Image 3). Continue in this manner until the yarn completely circles around to form the web (Images 4 and 5).
Play the Game
Blindfold players then spin them around a few times (Images 1 and 2). Add a glue dot to the back of a card stock spider and allow the player to place the spider on the web (Image 3). Award points for each ring of the web with the center being the highest.
