This is a fun art activity that our babies did last week. The babies worked on hand print spiders in their occupational therapy. I thought they looked more like bats because of the antennae, so they transformed into bats when we added the faces later.
Hand print Bats:
You will need:
Black tempera paint
Pink pom pom
Red felt cut into shape of mouth
Help your child place the hand prints onto the paper, one at a time to form the shape of a bat. After the bat is dry, your child can glue the eyes, nose and mouth onto the bat.
The finished bat
Capri loved the tickling of the black paint as her OT painted her hand
while Grayson loved the way the paint looked on his fingers.
Ryder was impressed by his hand print bat
while Xayden just loved the whole process.
