    German Christmas Activity

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have done this with K-5th grade. Every class has loved it. I read The Cobweb Christmas. I believe it is by Shriley Climo. Then we make Christmas spiders. I have done this differently each year depending on what materials I can find. Last year I got the cheapest gold glitter styrofoam Christmas balls I could find. I popped off the hanger and hot glued a cyrstal bead on where the hanger had been. This made the two parts of the spider's body. I had fourth grade students and four glue guns. They did this for themselves. For little ones you may want to do that part yourself. Then I gave students each two gold pipecleaners. which they cut in half (now four parts). Then they twistede them around the "neck" of the spider. Now you have eight legs to bend in position. If you would like to add a special touch tie a bow around to cover up where the pipe cleaners cross. But this might be a challenge for little hands. Looks jusst fine without the bow though. We did this with our first grade friends. All the kids loved them.
