To make a handprint spider you will need:


  • Black paint
  • Card
  • Black wool
  • Eyes (Googly eyes would work well but we used white pom poms with a dot drawn in the middle)
  • Gold pen (to draw on smile)



How to make a handprint spider:

  1. Cover your hands in black paint and make 2 handprints next to one another. Spread out your fingers as each finger will create one spiders leg.  how to make a handprint spider
  2. Once the handprints are dry cut them out. Cut off the thumbs so you are left with 8 legs. 
  3. Stick on some eyes. Googly eys are fun or you could use white pom poms like we did. 
  4. Draw a smile using the gold pen.  
  5. Stick a piece of wool to the back of the spider so that you can make him dangle down.
