Hand Print Spider/Finger Puppet

Your child will hand it to you for helping her with this neat project. It's a great activity to do with a small group, so they can act out puppet shows when finished.

What You Need:

  • Black paper
  • Stickers for eyes
  • Tape

What To Do:

  1. Fold paper in half.
  2. Lay child's hand on the paper with the palm over the fold.
  3. Trace around the child's hand (only 4 fingers for the spiders 8 legs, don't trace the thumb)
  4. Leaving paper folded (and don't cut the fold) cut out around child's hand print
  5. Open up the paper you should see a double image of the child's hand print (like wings)
  6. Place eyes on spider
  7. Cut a strip of paper about 1/2" x 5"
  8. On the underside of the spider tape the paper right in the middle (so you have some extra hanging on both sides of tape).
  9. Now push the paper up on both sides and tape in place. This should make little finger holes for the child so it will go on 2 fingers like a ring does
