CRAFTASTIC: Hand Print Spiders

It's Day Two of GET YOUR GHOUL ON! MONTH at AFOMFT and today I'm featuring a great kid's craft - Hand Print Spiders from The Mother Huddle

So cute!  And so simple, too.  All you need is some paper, a paper plate, washable black paint (you could probably even try this with chocolate pudding) and some wiggly eyes (if you don't have them handy, you could use white paint or white paper instead).  Then dip your child's hands in the paint:

Have them spread their fingers out and press the palm of each hand onto the paper with the "heels" of their hands touching. 

Let the prints dry, cut them out, add the eyes and you're all done!  Instant Halloween decoration/keepsake.   

For the full project how-to plus great craft ideas, recipes and so much more, be sure to visit The Mother Huddle.

  3. We did a different variation a few weeks ago for "bug week" and it's even cleaner! Trace hands with chalk on black construction paper, then cut out, glue together, and add eyes! :) LOVE YOUR BLOG!
