Halloween Craft: Sweet Handprint Spiders

Oct 18, 2013

How cute are these little nursery school spiders? Momstown loves this simple craft that can be used to create a whole web of spiders!

You Will Need: 

  • black paint
  • kraft or construction paper
  • googly eyes or binder hole reinforcements
  • string for web (optional)


1. Have you child paint the palm of his or her hand black (four fingers and hand, no thumb) and press onto paper twice—back to back—to create handprints that look like a spider with eight legs!

2. Add eyes and you've got a very cute handprint spider.

If you make lots of spiders, you can put them up on a bulletin board, window or door and use string to create a web around them!
