Fall Craft #1 ~ Handprint Bat with Bouncy Ball Web

by Carrie Wells, Ed.D.

Handprint Bat with Bouncy Ball Web

  • Lid from a large container (or a box)
  • Black craft paint
  • White craft paint
  • 2 bouncy balls (or large marbles)
  • Black construction paper
  • White construction paper
  • 2 small wiggly eyes
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors

To make the web: Begin by cutting a web shape out of black paper. Place in box lid. Put white paint on bouncy balls and place on paper. Encourage your child to roll the balls around to make the spider web. 

To make the spider: Paint your child's fingers and part of her palm black. Make a handprint on white paper, flip the paper, and make a second overlapping handprint. When it dries, glue wiggly eyes.

To assemble: Cut out the spider and paste on the web.
