Spider Playground

It's that time of year when you are cosied up in the evening with a cuppa watching something interesting and suddenly out of the corner of your eye you see a HUGE spider scuttling across the floor.

They all manage to somehow sneak inside at this time of year and even when you put them out, they find their way back in pretty quickly.

We've been spotting spider's webs all over the place recently - in the garden and playpark that is...hopefully not toooooo many inside!  

And did you know if you touch the web really gently with a little leaf the spider will come rushing out to see what he has caught?  
A bit mean to trick the spider but very interesting for little ones!

Anyway, we made our own little spider playground recently with fallen leaves, pebbles, sticks and plant pots and we've hidden our pretend spiders in amongst it all, I wonder if the real spiders will come to play too?
