  • Fuzzy Fun: Using craft materials, like fuzzy sticks, allow students to explore softer textures when they create art!
  • Creepy Crawlers: Who knew exercise could be so crafty?! Bending, twisting, and folding the legs of these fuzzy spiders will strengthen the muscles in your students’ fingers and hands.

While your students exercise their crafting muscles, take some time to explore the world of spiders. Tarantulas are some of the largest spiders in the world — and they are very hairy, just like fuzzy sticks! What part of the world do they live in? What do they eat? Are there any other types of spiders your students can learn about?
