|Can you spot the rats and spiders?|
|Here they are!|
Cut up some black tissue paper and put it in the tub with a few pine cones, leaves and any other suitable bits you have and then add the spiders and rats, hiding them under the leaves and paper.
I also meant to add some sticks/twigs but totally forgot.
The creepy crawlies are really difficult to see among the black paper which makes it even more fun as you have to dig around and lift things/turn them over.
Monty is only 17 months and had fun hiding the rats and spiders, but I'm sure if I took this tub into my class of 6 year olds, they would enjoy it too - on a completely different level.
If you want to have a go at this, look in the Halloween aisle at the supermarket for the creepy spiders and rats.
