Silly Haunting Handprint Puppets

Turn your harmless handprint into a menacing monster in only three easy steps. This fun Halloween craft is perfect for preschoolers through elementary-aged students who are ready to get spooking. Make Silly Haunting Handprint Puppets with materials you already have in your house. These Halloween crafts for kids are more than just fun art projects; they're also toys you can play with all year long. Scare your siblings when your funny friend sneaks up behind them and says, "Boo!" There are no rules, so call on your imagination, and get crafting!


  • Construction paper: green, yellow, orange, purple
  • 4 jumbo craft sticks
  • White paper
  • Black Sharpie
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Glue stick


  1. Trace child's hand onto construction paper. Try different ways like having the fingers all touching together or having the thumb and pinky spread apart more than the others. Cut the handprints out.

  2. Use white paper to make circles and ovals for eyes. Make teeth from white paper as well. Attach eyes and teeth with a glue stick and add features some as eye pupils, eyebrows, and mouths with a black Sharpie.
  3. Use white craft glue to attach the jumbo craft sticks to the backs of the handprint puppets.
