Lair of the Spider Queen



This afternoon when my kids came downstairs from quiet time they found that our hallway had been invaded by spiders.  They had to use some super adventurer skills to get through safely.





Similar to the laser beam challenge from Maren's spy party last year, I taped white streamers around the hallway and poked spider rings through the streamers, making a fun obstacle course for the kids.


The kids decided it was the lair of the spider queen, and if you knocked down a string of web (streamer) it meant you had been caught and eaten.  When Joshua knocked one down he insisted the spider had only eaten his leg, so he could keep going.

Then the kids thought we should make the entrance to her cave a bit spookier, so we hung some streamers and Maren made a sign.  The kids had a great time playing adventurers for a long while.









This would be a fun halloween party game, or a fun game for a rainy fall day.

  3. I love this!!! We don't have a hallway in my house that's long enough to make this fun, so I might do a whole room like this for our Halloween party! I think everyone will get a kick out of it. :)
