Handprint Spider Craft

 Halloween is just around the corner! Whip up one of these cute spider cards with the help of your little one:)
  • Halloween Paper
  • Black Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Googly Eyes
  • Tacky Glue
  • Chubby little hand:)
1. Prepare your work area. I started with a big piece of orange paper in case it took more than one try: surprisingly it didn’t- I seriously couldn’t believe it!! Make sure you protect your work surface too

I also stripped little miss down just in case and threw an old t-shirt on to protect my clothes too

2. Paint your kiddo’s fingers on one hand- try not to get the thumb since you won’t need it.

3. Make 2 hand prints on your orange paper. I repainted her hand in between. Try not to worry about those little smudges- you know grandma will love them:)

4. Paint in a black spider body.

5. Let your spider dry and then cut it out- I decided on a pretty wonky shape. Add some googly eyes with a bit of tacky glue. Add your spider cutout to a folded piece of Halloween cardstock and you’re done.
*If you want to stick this cutey in the mail I think it takes extra postage since it’s not flat…
Happy Halloween!

  1. What a cute idea! Someone also told me that you can paint your child’s booty and have them sit on the paper. It looks like a pumpkin when your all done. Pretty funny huh? They did turn out really cute though. 🙂


  2. Of course, you know I love this! Since we tried to do it, and it didn’t work out for this year (darn terrible twos), but hope to make it work next year. Thanks again for sharing! Kerri
