Try This! Spiderweb Tangle

Play the Spiderweb Tangle Game

Set up a spiderweb game in your living room. Unwind different colors of yarn throughout the room, wrapping it around various pieces of furniture until you have a huge tangle. Hand each child the end of a different color of yarn and have them follow their color to see who gets their web unwound first.
