What You Need To Make Our Spider Halloween Handprint Craft

  • Large sheets of white paper (the big rolls of paper you can buy from places like IKEA are great for this – or buy a roll of lining paper from a DIY store.
  • Black paint – you could make multi coloured spiders, you don’t have to stick to black.
  • Shallow plate – to hold the paint, so make it big enough for little hands to press into the paint.
  • Scissors
  • Glue – sticks or pots of glue, whichever you prefer.
  • Stick on craft eyes – be careful not to use ones that are too tiny and supervise children carefully so they don’t put them in their mouths. As they can be a choke hazard. You could if you prefer just draw on the eyes afterwards.

How To Make Our Spider Halloween Handprint Craft 

  • Cut a large piece of paper off the roll – and spread it flat on the table.
  • Squirt a good dollop of black paint onto the plate.
  • Let the kids make handprints all over the paper.
  • When the handprints are dry – cut them out
  • Stick two handprints together to make a spider body with legs.
  • Stick on the eyes – or draw them on if you’re not using the goggly eyes

How To Display Your Halloween Handprint Craft

  • You could hang these down on threads from the ceiling or doorways.
  • Simply thread with cotton for a unique spider bunting decoration – ideal for kids Halloween parties.
