Handprint Spider


With Halloween approaching quickly, we are starting to get in the Halloween spirit. We put some window clings on the front window and glass front door the other day which are supposed to glow in the dark, but I have yet to see any glowing.  But Cheyenne thinks they are neat, so that’s cool.  🙂

I’m wanting to do more Halloween crafts now that we are getting close and Cheyenne loves doing different crafts. Thanks to Pinterest, there are Halloween crafts galore to choose from!!   So today, we made a Handprint Spider.  All you need for this is a piece of paper, some black paint, a couple of googly eyes and some glue to glue on the eyes.

Cheyenne gets so excited about crafts that sometimes I have to just step back and let her do more herself.  This time, she wanted to paint her hands for the handprint spiders, so I hesitantly let her do it, almost hovering the whole time.  She did great and I just had to do a little touch up to get her hand completely covered.

 She painted one hand and made a handprint on the paper.

I put a dot of glue on the back of two googly eyes and Cheyenne put them on her spider ever so carefully and this is what she ended up with!

She did such a great job and had so much fun!!  Give it a try and let me know!!  I love comments!!

  1. looks great love seeing the art projects – our pre-school did a reindeer (rudolph) a couple of years ago for Christmas with the same technique. 🙂

  2. Oh, we did that a few years ago! So fun. Although that craft paint was a pain to get off for us!

    • Yeah, it was definitely harder than finger paint or other kids paints, but I didn’t have any black in washable paint. So I had to use that, but as long as I washed it off as soon as she printed her hand, it wasn’t too bad. I wasn’t about to wait until both of them were printed to try and wash it off. It’s an extra step, but definitely worth it. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!!
