8 Awesome Halloween Handprint Art and Footprint Templates
The printable templates included in this pack make Halloween footprint art super easy and doable with kids. My 4 year old giggled the whole way through. This ended up being a fun bonding and crafting experience for the both of us. Plus, he loves seeing the size of this hand and footprints on the paper!

How to make the Halloween handprint art
These are pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll provide some tips for making this a bit easier! Begin by printing the pack of templates above, print all or simply select which pages you want to print in the print settings.
Tips for doing handprint art:
- use a bin or a tray for containing the art
- have a towel next to the bin to step the foot or place the hand into
- wipe the foot or hand clean with paper towels right after pressing down onto the paper
- paint the hand or foot with a paintbrush rather than have the child dip or press the hand/foot into a pile of paint
- use washable paint only!
What kinds of halloween handprint art templates are included in the pack?
Below are all of the different pieces of art that you can make from the included templates. Feel free to change up however you and your child want to create these. Below are how we decided to place the hands/feet to make our characters!
The bat template in this one is missing wings! We used footprints to make flying wings, you could also use handprints with fingers closed.
This is my personal favorite in the pack, I think it came out so cute! Simply add a footprint and a face.
This ghost is missing arms. Add handprints to each side to make the cloaked arms ready to take flight!
This Jack-o-Lantern is a fun one to get messy with! Handprints covering the pre-made face will turn orange hands into a jack-0-lantern. Once dried, outline the face with a black marker.
This vampire looked a little bit different in my head. The way we made it with red paint and with the size of my son’s foot, it looks a bit like the vampire is vomiting blood instead of wearing a cape…it’s yours for the taking if you want it 😉
Another favorite of mine is this witch and cauldron. Paint the fingers green for some steaming witch’s brew, and a purple footprint under the witch’s hat makes a cute witch. Add a face and arms after the witch dries!
This is another one that didn’t come out exactly as I had planned. My intention was for two footprints to complete the arched legs/body of the cat. But, my 4 year old has very large feet, and they didn’t fit on the paper, so he opted to make 4 legs with his fingers, and I loved his ingenuity with it.
Turn your Halloween handprint art into a keepsake!
These can be glued and matted to construction paper to keep, or placed in a frame for seasonal decor. We like to glue them onto canvases and add layers of Mod Podge to make canvas art for the season. See how we followed this technique with our Christmas handprint art for gifting.
Have so much fun with these fun printable templates, we would love to see how you decide to use them!
