For our project, we used:
White Construction Paper
Black, Orange, Green, and Purple Washable Kid's Paint
I mixed together the black paint with water in an empty applesauce container. There's no exact measurements for this. I wanted it to be watery enough for the kids to easily blow the paint with a straw but thick enough to leave a good trail. We did a little trial and error with this until we got the consistency we wanted, adding a little more water or paint as necessary.
We let the pages dry overnight and then added spiders to our webs.
I love using handprints or fingerprints in a craft because I think it makes them extra special for the parents. We used our fingerprints to make colorful spiders out of orange, yellow, green, and purple paint.
Once they were dry, we added legs and eyes using my favorite scented markers. Now, spiders actually have 8 eyes, but I wanted ours to be more friendly-looking so we just did two.
These turned out beautifully and would be perfect for Halloween cards to send to the grandparents. I know my mother would love these sweet little spiders!
