Gravity! Simple, fun, and the foundation of so many science concepts. This science game uses things from around the house. Kids can experiment with the speed of the spiders by raising or lowering their end of the string.
First cut the pipe cleaners for the legs, then glue onto the inside of one bottle cap. Glue another bottle cap to the otherside to make a sort of sandwich. Not pictured above, are some pom balls for the head… glue on a pom ball with some eyes.
Next glue a small piece of the straw to the back of the spider. Thread some string through the straw for the races!
Add a bit of string and some short sticks for the “handles” and let the races begin!
