Friday Book Project-The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Welcome to our Friday Book Project! I am very excited to get back to our book activities and I hope that you will join in as well! The book we read today is The Itsy Bitsy Spider by Iza Trapani.
This is such a cute story and of course my girls love singing it as we read. The illustrations in the book are so fun and it's neat to see the Itsy Bitsy Spider climbing through many adventures.

The projects we did to go along with the story was a silly spider hat!

1. Cut 2 strips of black construction paper.

2. Tape them together to create a band that fits your child's head.

3. Cut 8 strips of black construction paper to create legs.

4. Tape the legs to the inside of the top of the band.

5. After all the legs are attached, bend them to create  "knees".

6. Add some eyes and a mouth.

Now your child can wear their spider hat while reading {or singing} the story!

If you have a book inspired project or activity that you would like to share, add your link to the Mr. Linky below!


  1. This is one of my favorite books that I sang to my girls when they were little. We still have it and will probably never let it go. I remember my girls made the spider hats in preschool too. Fun!

  2. That is so cute! I love this song. Thanks so much for sharing, I'll be linking to this.


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
