This super easy craft looks like a fun project for your homeschool! Please welcome Crystal to the site! ~Kelli
I am so excited to be here guest posting on Kelli’s deal site. My name is Crystal and I blog over at Crystal & Co. I have a passion for sharing solutions and resources with mommy’s. If you check out my site you will find lots of craft ideas as well as easy recipes.
Today I thought it would be fun to share a craft, as well as some additional resources, that can be used to go with the children’s rhyme we are all familiar with- Itsy Bitsy Spider. Over the weekend I sat down with my three littlest boys and we had lots of fun making itsy bitsy spiders. This would be a fun activity to add to your preschool curriculum as well.
- black washasble finger paint
- white card-stock
- 2 wiggly eyes for each spider
- paper plate
Start by squeezing black finger paint onto a paper plate.
Spread it around evenly with your finger (or a spoon or spreader).
Assist your little one while they press their palm in the paint.
Place your little one’s hand on the card-stock and press firmly.
Repeat with the other hand.
You want thumbs pointing up and palms facing each other.
Let the hand prints dry 100%.
Once the prints are dry, you can cut them out.
Add a drop of school glue to the back of two wiggly eyes.
Add the wiggly eyes to the hand prints and you’re done.
So easy and so fun.
