Creating a Number Web is such fun. Your children simply connect the numbers found on the sides of the spider. They will start with the number one and work their way up to the number ten. When they have connected all the numbers one to ten, they will have created a spider web.
There are many ways that children can connect the numbers to make their webs. Let me share with you a few of the ways I have thought of. After reading them over, I hope you will leave some ideas of your own in the comment section of this post.
Ways to Use the Counting Worksheets
Using a Writing Tool
Children can use crayons, a marker, colored pencil or number two pencil to connect the numbers. This is probably the fastest way to create a web. Children can use only one color to connect the numbers or a wide variety of colors.
If you laminate a set of counting worksheets, you children can use dry erase markers to connect the numbers.
Weaving with Yarn
If you print out the Creating the Number Web sheets on card stock, you can easily use yarn to connect the numbers. A hole punch can be used to place holes on the outside edge of each number. Then you simply tape the end of long piece of yarn on the back of the printable beside the number one hole.
Your children can put the yarn through the number one hole and place it down the hole by its matching number. Then they will weave the yarn up the number two hole and down the number two hole on the other side. They will continue to this process until all the numbers have been connected.

If you laminate the Creating the Number sheet, you can have your children connect the numbers with Wikki Stix easily. They will be easy to place on the plastic covered web and taken off when they are done. We tried using the web uncovered and found they left a little residue.
These are just a few ways to use this printable. I bet you can come with the even more way to use spider web counting worksheets with your children. If you do, please leave comment below.
