There are similar project as this, using watercolors instead of the colored chalk to bring out the spider web. Either method will work, it’s mostly a matter of the drying time needed with the watercolors. We’re using colored chalk for this, although I do think the watercolors make for a brighter background. You’ll find the spider body and feet pattern and the list of supplies needed in the project titled, “Itsy, Bitsy Spider,” in the 2nd Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
