One of Jack's favorite songs is the Itsy Bitsy Spider. While Jack was taking his morning nap Grace & I wanted to surprise him when he woke up with a spider that goes up a water spout by making this Itsy Bitsy Spider cup!
Grace first chose a plastic cup. Grace chose blue because she said it is Jack's favorite color. I placed the cup upside-down and poked a small hole in the bottom. We then cut a piece of yarn that was just long enough to form a loop going along the inside and outside of the cup. We knotted the yarn to form the loop so that the spider can slide up and down. Grace then made the spider by drawing and coloring a circle black. I added the legs and Grace added the googly eyes. Next, we cut out the spider and taped it onto the yarn loop. Grace also drew a sun and we glued that to the back side of the cup.Grace couldn't wait for Jack to wake up so she could show him her surprise. Jack couldn't have been any happier to hear Grace sing his favorite song. Jack was amazed to watch the Itsy Bitsy Spider climb up the water spout and to see the sunshine dry up all the rain!
