Other Spider Crafts to Make Story Time More Fun:
Glow-in-the-dark paint (if you want your spider web to glow)
To begin lay out a large piece of wax paper to work on.
Make a gluey mixture in your bowl by adding 1 tablespoon of glue with one tablespoon of water.
Next take your yarn and cut four two foot long pieces, soak them in the gluey mixture and then arrange them on the paper crossing one another to create a spokes.
Next cut a long 6 foot piece of yarn and soak it in the mixture.
Now starting from the center of the spokes you just made, lay down the long piece slowly creating a spiral - this will fill out your web.
When you are finished let it dry.
Paint it so it glows if you wish.
Peel it off slowly and hang it someplace cool.
