Handprint spider activity

Grab some paint and get messy!

This simple craft is a great way to introduce small children to spiders, and to show they're not scary!

  • Paint one of your child's hands black
  • Make two overlapping handprints on some paper
  • Add some eyes

Now give your spider a name, and count his legs!
