Make It! Spider Web Dream Weaver
Don’t squish that spider!!
The spider is one member of the “pest control” team that you will meet in Do Unto Animals. A lot of the time we don’t give this creature the credit he deserves – not only for his work keeping our garden pest-free, but for the detail he puts into each and every web that he spins.
Some spider families control our insect population by strategically placing their webs on our plants and trees to capture insects who crawl upon them. Each species of spider weaves its own individual web pattern and careful observers can tell exactly what kind of spider has made each web by looking at the pattern that’s been spun.
Spiders may not have the best reputation but they are helpful creatures with amazing skills that protect our plants. Their webs are intricate and detailed and should be respected when spotted.

Our craft contributor, Jodi Levine, has crafted a spider web of her own and used it to make a dream weaver! We like to think that if we hang it over our bed it might help to capture our bad dreams! Thanks, Spidey!
