How To Make A Handprint Spider In Plate Web
Need to do a Halloween handprint art project with your kids? Want something that is so easy and cheap?
In our family, doing a handprint or footprint art activity for every occasion is a special tradition. I love creating, giving and, receiving handmade gifts. So, if you make me something I am more than likely to save and treasure it! I save and display all keepsakes from every holiday since they were tiny newborns! So, for Halloween, I have all the Halloween keepsakes like this bat garland displayed so I can see how much they have grown. Babies and kids don’t keep, unfortunately.
The items needed to make a handprint spider in plate web:
- Foam/paper plate
- Hole Puncher
- Craft paint (My favorite)
- Construction paper (This is what I used)
- Googly eyes
Have your kids paint their hands, but not their thumbs. Pick any colors. We picked bright green for this activity.
Press a hand onto the construction paper then another hand with the fingers pointing in the opposite direction. Now you have just created an 8-legged spider!
Glue or stick on googly eyes. If you don’t have googly eyes, then your kids could draw big eyes onto their spiders. The spider my daughter made reminds me of this adorable Lucas the spider!
Cut out the center of a foam or paper plate leaving only the outer part.
Paint the plate in any color. We picked the color, pearl orange.
Have your kids use a hand hole puncher to punch the holes in the outer part randomly.
Thread through the holes in the plate with a long piece of yarn to create a spider web look.
OPTIONAL: String a smaller piece of yarn through two of the holes, so it can be displayed on a wall easily.
This handprint spider craft is so simple that your kids could do it all on their own!
