The Eensy Weensy Spider

We checked out The Eensy Weensy Spider adapted by Mary Ann Hoberman from the library and Alex loved it. It is a cute adaption of what the spider does after the water spout incident. Its a the day in the life of the spider, which includes walking in a parade, falling and scraping her knees, having her mom put Bandaids on her knees (my son's favorite part), swimming with a frog, hugging a bug, getting new shoes and such. We definately recommend this book!
 After we read this book I helped Alex make his own Eensy Weensy Spider.

I cut all the pieces out of construction paper and he glued them on where I told him too.

We made rain drops using  a small paper tube bent into a raindrop shape and stamped on with paint.

I drew a little "boo-boo" on 3 of his legs and Alex covered them with small Bandaids. Alex even drew a sad face on him because he had "boo-boo's".  We also added 6 red shoes and a red hat on him.

 I think he came out pretty cute, and Alex was very proud of him. He couldn't wait to show Daddy and Grammy.

  7. The tube makes a perfect raindrop shape. We love singing the song. Sometimes we switch things up and sing it in a minor key, it sounds ominous.
