You might call it a Kirigami spider web. Kirigami is the art of cutting and folding paper into an object. I have another fun little paper cutting project for Halloween parties. In this pumpkin cutting activity with poem, children listen to a poem following the directions on how to fold and cut a piece of orange paper and when the poem is finished they have made a paper jack-o-lantern.
Paper Spider Web Supplies
- Black paper (about the weight of copy paper or wrapping paper. I wanted large spider webs so I found a roll of black paper at Michaels. Any size paper will work.
