1. Pour green paint onto paper plate. Either apply paint to child’s palm using a brush, or let them go for it and squish their hand into the plate.

2. Assist your child by splaying out their fingers and pressing their hand onto the paper.

4. Once dry, use black marker to trace around the fingers (hair). Use lead pencil to draw in features (bolts, mouth, scars). Hand over the black marker and have child trace the details and colour the hair in.

5. Glue on googly eyes. Allow to dry!
