Incy Wincy Spider

Incy Wincy spider song prop:

Making this song prop provides a great sensory experience when using the black paint with your hands.  The children love squelching the paint and making marks with various items they choose as well as their hands of course.  One of the best tools we have.

To make the prop you will need:
  • Kitchen roll tube
  • Long piece of wool
  • White card
  • Black paint
  • Small piece of white / black card
You can see in the pictures that the spider is a child's handprints back to back to produce the spiders body and legs.

Make a small hole in the top of the kitchen roll tube and another on the opposite side of the bottom of the tube.  Thread the wool through the top hole, down the tube and then thread through the bottom hole.

Attach a small piece of card to the wool threaded through the bottom hole (see picture).

Attach your Incy Wincy to the other end (see picture).

By threading the wool in this way and attaching to the piece of card, a mechanism is formed to pull Incy up and down the tube.

The children love making hi and have so much fun using this prop to sing the song.

Have fun!
