I came up with this quick song to the tune of The Ants Go Marching as an October Maypole Dance for my Sing With Our Kids Project. You can get instructions for making as simple spider Maypole from a black umbrella and plastic table cloth strips HERE. Simply replace colored umbrella and table cloths with black ones.

Do this with a deliberate “freeze/walk” to the music. Take a long, low step on each of the bold underlined words, freezing in between.

Walk Around The Edge Of The Web

Walk around the edge of the web but don’t…. Get stuck
Walk around the edge of the web but don’t…. Get stuck
Don’t go into the middle my friend,
You’ll get stuck it will be the end
You can walk around the edge… of the web
But don’t get stuck
Boom boom, boom (repeat)


VARIATION:
If you don’t want to make a Maypole, you can make a spider web on the floor with black removable tape or yarn - or even walk around a circle rug. It really doesn't matter. Kids will have fun with this whatever you do!
