Autumn Games Ideas Time Killers

Indoor Spider Hunt

Written by Claire

Is it just me or are spiders taking over at home?
It makes me want to go through the house with a fine tooth comb!
This time of year is prime spider breeding time,
See how many you can spot while they’re in their prime!

Everywhere I look there they are. Spiders everywhere! I changed the bed today and under the bottom sheet, I found a squashed one….arrgggh! So it turns out that this time of year is prime breeding time. As the weather cools they make (creep) their way into warm spaces, like your house! Here’s your one-stop guide to the common house spiders you may spot, and if you’re feeling brave why not have your very own minibeast hunt with the kids…without even leaving the house! Eeeeeeek!

Common House Spider – These can get quite big!

Jumping Spider

Orb Weaver
