COLLECT A SPIDER WEB
 

 

One of the ways you can tell an insect from a spider is that insects have one body part while spiders have two body parts. The first part, called the prosoma, contains the spider’s eyes and mouth. The second is the abdomen, which is where the fluid that becomes the silk for its webs comes from. Did you know that spider silk is stronger than steel wire of the same size? Isn’t that amazing?

How would you like to take a close look at a spider web?
If so, this activity will show you how to do it.
 

Supplies:

• Spider web
• Black construction paper or board
• White spray paint
• Spray adhesive
• Scissors
• Spray acrylic sealer (optional)

Directions:
  1. Find a good web. Make sure its maker isn’t home. Avoid any webs that have a spider’s dinner in it or egg sacs, which look like small dust balls or cotton balls.
  2. Spray the web with the white paint. Then, spray the paper or board with the adhesive, and quickly press it to the web without tearing it.
  3. Cut the threads that are supporting the web.
  4. If you want, spray the web and paper with a coat of spray acrylic sealer.

The Bible Lesson:
Just like the spiders, we are weaving or spinning a pattern in life. Each decision we make affects the pattern. Bad choices will make our pattern weak so that our enemy, Satan, can break through and cause us harm. We need to make sure we make good choices so that our pattern is strong and when Satan comes we will be able to resist him. The Bible says that when we resist the devil, he flees from us. If you want the devil to run away from you, learn about Jesus through the Bible and let Him be your example.
