Halloween Crafts - Hand-print Spiders!

Over the next week will be posting various arts, crafts and baking activities  you can enjoy doing with your little ones in the run up to Halloween! 

Have you seen our post for Pumpkin Painting? If not check it out here - Pumpkin Painting Blog Post.

So today we had a go at making some fun, funky spiders using our hands! 

All you will need is Plain paper, Black paint and a paint brush!

Using the black paint, paint your child's hand ensuring it is all completely covered in the paint. 



Now gently (with the child's fingers spread apart) place the child's hand onto the paper and apply gentle pressure to ensure the paint is transferred to the paper properly. 


Repeat this with the second hand ensuring where the 2 thumbs meet on the paper they slightly overlap to create the body. 

Now add googly eyes or draw/paint some eyes on.

Ta-Da you have your spider.





You could tape a piece of string or wool to the back and hang them up for funky Halloween decorations if you like.
