Toddler Activities: Itsy Bitsy Spider Gloves

By: Deborah Pace Rowley
For this fun toddler finger play, save a plastic spider from Halloween and glue it onto one mitten. On the other mitten, glue some felt shapes. Glue the water drops on the back of the mitten and the sun in the  palm of the mitten. Then you can either wear the gloves yourself or have your child wear the gloves as you sing and act out the song together.
Oh, the itsy, bitsy spider climbed up the water spout.  (Act out the spider climbing.)

Down came the rain and washed the spider out.  (Take the other glove and wiggle your fingers as you bring the rain down on top of the spider.)
Up came the sun and dried up all the rain. (Raise the glove with the palm out so you can see the sun.)
And the itsy, bitsy spider climbed up the spout again. (Act out the spider climbing again.)

P.S. Not exactly our brightest moment - photographing these black gloves on a cutie wearing a black sweater in front of a black background. :) Oh well, she loves them anyway!
