Spooky Spider Handprint Craft

Thanks to Hali for contributing this project -- Kaitlyn loves hers!!

I have a craft you may like to add.  It is a spider made of the children's hand prints (from black tempera paint).

Materials:

Instructions:

You're done!  You can hang from anywhere!

I did this with my dayhome kids ages 6 months to 5 years, and they all loved it.

Suggestion from a viewer:
"For the Halloween spider hand print craft, a faster, less messy version: Instead of covering hand with paint, use black paper. Kids then trace their hands (without the thumb), cut them out (keeping both hand tracings attached), bend the fingers and add the string."
