Spider & Web Craft


Spider & Web



This guy was made from styrofoam egg carton and pipe cleaners! How easy is that?

Our spiders & their web! We made our web from a plastic oatmeal container lid. I took a utility knife and cut out the center  of the lid then added slits to the inside to add string to make look like a web.

Allah Created Spiders, Alhamdulilah!


Bees & Bee Hive Craft

What’s Spring without Bees and a bee hive? We couldn’t forget about bees!


Bees & Hive

Here is our bee we made out of a baby food jar lid! We simply painted it black and glued yellow felt strips on it and glued white felt wings to the back.

Another bee and our hive.

We made our hive from newspaper dipped in glue (paper mache’) we used a gallon milk jug as our model to cover with newspaper. we covered it half way,let it dry then wedged it out. We stuffed the top part with crumbled, balled up newspaper to fit our formation we were looking for. Then we covered it with more glued newspaper strips.

Bees & Hive We added the bees to the hive with pipe cleaners

Allah created Bees, Alhamdulilah!

Mosquito Craft

Mosquitoes! Yes, you read that right!

What can I say, My Big Lug loves all of Allah’s creation masha Allah. His favorites of Allah’s creation, Insects!  We have spent the passed 2 months talking,exploring,reading & learning all about insects!



This one looks a bit more complicated but it is quite simple to make. All you need is pipe cleaners and what ever you want to use for the wings. We used cookie container plastic. You know the inside packaging that holds  cookies. We cut it to the size we wanted and we had our wings!

Allah created Mosquitoes~ Alhamdulilah!
