Spiderman Handprint

My little on recently had a birthday. This birthday was going to be different. No party with friends and family because of the pandemic. So I wanted to make it as special as I possibly could. I decided there was going to be a party, a party with just my husband, our kids, and myself. He loves Spiderman so the theme I chose was Spiderman.


I recruited everyone to help. My daughter loves to bake so I put her in charge of making a Spiderman birthday cake which I must say she did an amazing job. My husband made homemade pizza, my two older boys took crape paper and made a spider web for us to crawl through in our hallway. I took yarn and made a spiderweb on the door, printed off spider coloring pages which we used to play pin the spider on the web.


Something was missing though. What else could we do for entertainment at this party? My little guy loves to paint and do crafts so I searched online for a Spiderman craft and found a Spiderman handprint craft. Yes! Right up his alley!

Materials Needed:

Red acrylic paint

White acrylic paint



Black Sharpie marker


First I painted my son’s hand with red acrylic paint.  Then press the handprint down on the paper firmly down on the cardstock.  **Make sure when you press the handprint on the paper the handprint is printed upside down.  Allow the handprint to fully dry. Once it is dry paint Spiderman’s eyes with white acrylic paint. When the eyes are dried use your black Sharpie marker and draw a spider web around the eyes and then draw a spider coming down from the web. Finally, allow the craft to dry and then display.


My son loved this craft because it was simple and of course because it was his handprint that created Spiderman! I wrote the date on it so that when we look back on it my little one can see how big his hand grew! 


What birthday theme’s did you do over this quarantine for your child?

  1. That is such a cute craft idea! I love this new spin on an old classic craft. Very cool.

  2. My youngest had a birthday in April and we just made cookies. I did not have the ingredients to make a cake

    • I hear ya! I have 4 children with April birthdays. I did find some cake recipes online that you can make homemade with only a few ingredients. My kids enjoyed them.
