Friday Fun!

Each Friday, my children and I attempt to do something fun.
Today, we made a Halloween craft - 
Hand Print Spiders

What you will need:

White paper (I used scrapbook paper that is more heavy duty than copier paper)

Black paint

Paint brush

Scissors (or safety scissors, if you want your kids to do the cutting)


Fishing line

How to - 
Step 1: Use the paint brush to put black paint on your child's hand. (You can skip the thumb if you want less mess because you'll cut it off anyway).

Step 2: Press the child's painted hand onto the white paper. (You will need 2 hand prints for each spider)

Step 3: Let the hand prints dry.

Step 4: Cut out the hand prints (or have your child do it). If you printed the thumb, cut it off. Don't stress if there is some white around the edges.

Step 5: Place 2 hand prints face down. Overlap them to your spiders desired size. Tape them together.

Step 6: Bend the fingers where they meet the hands to make the spider's legs.

Step 7: Poke a small hole in the middle of the spider's back. Add fishing line for a hanging-from-the-web effect.

Optional steps - you can embellish your spiders any way you wish. Add eyes or markings (like red paint) to make different types of spiders.
