Incy Wincy Spider Nursery Rhyme Craft

By Mummyoftwo @RaspberryGiggle

When Little Mr A was a toddler I attended a craft session run by Sure Start where we made lots of props for nursery rhymes. We loved sitting to sing the rhymes with the crafts and I thought it would be nice to make some for Little Miss A too.

First on my list was Incy Wincy Spider and here's how we made it...

How to make Incy Wincy Spider...

1. Cut a circle from the black card and 8 legs.

3. Turn over the spider and stick on the googly eyes and draw a mouth with your chalk.

4. Cut a small strip from the bottom of the red card and stick this onto the back of your spider with double sided tape.

7. Place the spider through the two pieces of red card using the red strip you have attached to him.

That's it! You should now have Incy Wincy Spider who can climb up the drainpipe ('spout') together with a sun and raincloud which you can pull out from the side as you sing the song!

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed poor Incy out. Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain. So Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again!
