Handprint Spiders

Handprint Spiders
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Kids can make wiggly spiders using their own handprints.

What You Need:

  • Black Paint
  • Orange construction paper
  • Black Yarn
  • White Chalk
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paintbrushes
  • Hands

What You Do:

Make sure to spread out newspaper over your work area.

Paint the inside of palm and fingers, excluding the thumb, with black paint.

With fingers slightly spread, press palm on orange construction paper so that fingers are pointing to the right side of the paper.

Make an identical print with fingers pointing to the left side of the paper, overlapping the palm prints completely.

Glue a piece of black cord to the paper, extending from the top of the spider’s body to the top of the page. You may also draw a string.

Draw a face on the spider with chalk or white paint.
