Handprint hedgehogs: painting with babies

I tried this using 2 methods. One, using the child’s hand to create a black body, the other, using black paper. Personally, I thought the black paper version worked a little better.

What you need:

  • sugar paper ( I used old wall paper)
  • black paper (if using this for the body) and glue
  • shades of black and brown paint
  • pots and paint brushed


  • Cut out black paper bodies if you want

Very messy, but very popular!
