Materials Needed: Ink pad or paint, Spider Thumbprint pages, & a black marker

Optional Assembly: You can also place in a sheet protector or laminate to use with play dough.

To use: The student will practice the target word and then make a thumbprint spider on the web. The student will place their thumb on an ink pad and then stamp it over the target word on the web. Then using a black marker, the student will draw on eight legs. The therapist will determine the number or trials per spider.

(you can also use fingerprints)


Use play dough to smash to make spiders.

Use bingo chips to place over the webs.

Use bingo dotters (and then draw eight legs on the dot).
