I bought these plastic spiders for this activity, but when my kids saw them arrive they were WAY more excited than I expected.

Rea played with them for 10 minutes before doing the activity and any time I can get her to play and give me 10 minutes of quiet time I call it a win!

This activity will work on counting, number sense, and one-to-one correspondence (the value of a number.)
