Time to get crafting on your Handprint Spiders…
Materials Needed for Spider Handprints:
- Black card stock or construction paper
- Black felt for the spider’s body. You could use thick paper for this if you don’t have any felt on hand.
- Googly eyes
- School glue (not glue sticks)
How to Make Spider Handprints
- Simply trace and cut out your kiddo’s hand prints.
2. Cut the black felt into a circle.
3. Glue the hands on to the back of the felt and then the eye balls on to the front.
My little one couldn’t even keep her hands off these long enough for me to get a picture!
Another fun idea would be to glue a big Popsicle stick onto the back and make it a puppet.
