This spider handprint craft was SO easy to make. My preschooler loved seeing her handprints transformed into a spider. She also loved gluing the eye balls on her new little critter.
How to Make Handprint Spiders
Create the Hands
Have the child place their hand down with fingers spread out. Using a pencil, trace around the hand. Cut out the handprint as best as you can. It doesn’t need to be perfect!
Make the Body
Cut the black felt into a 2-3 inch circle. Again, this doesn’t have to be perfect.
Assemble the Spider
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.

- Use different size eye balls for a goofy looking spider.
