This time last year I did my very first craft activity, hand print halloween spiders!
Now, I had only just turned two years old, so I was a bit wriggly when we made these! My big sister Lea helped me, and Mummy and Luke took the photos.
Black ready mixed paint
Ready mixed glue
You can get these from most supermarkets or craft shops.
Lea squeezed the paint onto the paper plate. then I squidged my hand into the paint, and pressed it onto the card. This was where I was a bit wriggly! TIP – Mummy should have put the card onto the floor (or another flat surface) for me to press my hand onto.
The finished spiders were quite funny, and didn’t look that much like spiders, but that is what is so good about them, it doesn’t matter really what they look like! The paint was not washable paint, so we had to be careful about getting it on clothes, because it will stain, but it came off my hands fine. We wore old clothes to do this. TIP – You can buy ready mixed paint that will wash out.
They did take a while to dry, then we stuck on googly eyes with glue. The finished spiders could be cut out for Halloween decorations, or given as a Halloween card, or framed as a picture. What a great Halloween keepsake!
I gave my Halloween Cards to family and they loved them!
