Spooky Spider Web of Love
Spider Web of Love — A Halloween Yoga Game
This is a great morale building game for kids that teaches them to ‘see’ others, and learn how others may see them. Fosters compassion, empathy and unity as well as self-confidence.
You will need:
1 x Ball of Wool or Twine (a sparkly silver is great if you have it, but any color will do. Bright colors work great if you plan to wall mount the web after playing).
1 x Popsicle Stick per player
Small groups of 5-6 work best for this so each child receives several compliments.
Build your web:
Begin sitting in circle with a ball of wool or twine. The ‘starter’ takes the end piece of wool, wraps it around their popsicle stick (or hand if no popsicle sticks). Player then rolls the ball of wool to another participant along with a verbal compliment. For example: “Cindy, you are amazing at sport.”
The participant receiving the compliment loops part of the string around hand (or popsicle stick) before rolling ball to another participant, along with a verbal compliment, “Bob, you have a great smile.”
Continue until a giant web appears. If using popsicles, web can be mounted on a wall; a creative and artful reminder of how wonderful each child and the group as a whole is.
