Art projects and craft activities that go hand in hand with Eric Carle’s book The Very Busy Spider. Preschool art activities for the Very Busy Spider.
Overview of Book:
While a spider weaves her web, animals of the farm come and ask her to play. The spider is too busy spinning her web. Several things make this book a true winner. First the repetition. The repetition is an excellent way for pre-readers and early reader to learn to read. (A whole language approach, but it gives kids some success.) The illustrations are adorable. Buy on Amazon.
