Spiderweb find

I had noticed on Pinterest an idea of using string or wool to make a spiderweb laser game where children had to navigate their way through without touching the string. I loved the idea and wondered how i could make it more educational.

 I made the spiderweb with some wool i had leftover and tied it to all the furniture in the room. Then i scattered some items on the floor and sat at the end of the web and asked Tara to find all the items that started with a certain letter.
This got her thinking, moving and having a laugh. Body awareness and knowing how to move your body around objects effectively is a skill that is learnt at all ages. This activity can be altered for younger children by asking to "find the blue objects" for example and for older children "find the land animals"
