Spider handprint

To make this super cute spider handprint craft idea you only need a couple simple materials and you can make this easy craft for kids in just 10-15 minutes!

Materials:

  • Letter “S” is for Spider printable
  • A paint color of your choice for the spider’s body. We used brown, but black or purple would be fun too!
  • A contrasting color for the eyes and mouth (like white, yellow, or orange)
  • paint brush
  • wipes to clean hands

First, print the printable to go along with this craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our S is for Spider handprint, and we do the next page while the spider handprint is drying.

Spider Handprint Craft

Start by painting the palm and fingers brown (or another color for your spider’s body). Don’t put any paint on the thumb.

Now it’s time to make the handprints! You’ll want to make your first handprint in the center of the page, with fingers pointing towards the long edge. We find this is easiest to do by turning the paper to the side.

To make the spider’s next 4 legs, you’ll need to make another handprint. You may need to add more paint to the fingers. Rotate your paper around to the other side to make another handprint, overlapping the palm with the handprint you just made, with fingers pointing towards the opposite long edge.
