Making The Spooky Hands Craft
Using a permanent felt pen, help your early learners trace their hands on a sturdy piece of white paper. Stitches can be drawn on one of the hands. Assist with cutting the shapes out.
Together, mix a few drops of food coloring into containers of white corn syrup with spoons. A bit of yellow food coloring added to green makes it lighter and brighter. A few drops of yellow and red can be stirred to make orange. Combining red and blue makes purple.
Set out the paper hands, corn syrup paint, and paintbrushes. Invite your little learners to decorate each hand in one shiny color.
Add fake nails, Q-tips, and spiders. Let your little learners stick the loose parts into their tacky, painted hands.
Allow the sticky projects generous time to dry.
Other paint colors and nail art can be used to take advantage of seasonal supplies and make the craft project your own.
