Spider-ific Halloween Craft

It can be hard to come up with fun craft ideas for toddlers, but this is a cute and easy one kiddos of all ages will enjoy!

Paint your child’s palm and fingers, minus the thumb with black paint
*Here’s a tip, add a small dab of dish soap to the paint for easy clean up.

Press down on a piece of orange paper.
Repeat, but this time overlap the palm and have the fingers go in the opposite direction.

Glue on some googly eyes and Voila! you have a Spooky Spider!!
I had some black bat confetti so the boys also glued those around the spider as well.

These can make a really cute card for Halloween. We sent a picture of all three hand print spiders together, with a note and a photo of each boy in costume to our Aussie Uncle already. Hopefully it arrives in time for Halloween!

  7. When you guys use black paint for crafts such as these cute spiders, what brand are you using?? I bought the washable Crayola… Its too watery I find.

    Thanks

      I’m not sure what brand it was, it may not have even been washable paint. I find a blob of dishsoap in any paint comes out really well.
