Let the little ones decide what color handprints they want to use. We have decided to use purple for the spider’s legs. But black paint will also look great.

Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!

2 purple handprints

Cover their hands with paint and place their palms together and place them on either side at the bottom of the spider web. With the eyes in the middle of their palms. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.

Pull the child’s hand up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprints.

Let it dry completely before adding googly eyes and stickers.

Cut out the stickers and let the kids decide whether they want to add them to this picture or to another one.
