Preserving Spider Webs and Arachne


We discovered a magnificent spider web on our deck railing this morning.

We sprayed it with multipurpose spray adhesive, available at craft stores, and pressed a piece of black construction paper against it to preserve it.

The spider responsible is already building a new web in place of the old one, so we are going outside periodically to admire her work.

Earlier this week, we read about Arachne in Classic Myths to Read Aloud by William F. Russell, so finding a spider busy spinning her webs on our deck comes in good time.
