  • Draw in your hedgehog's eyes and mouth using a black pen.
  • Pour the paint onto your plate and dip your hand into the paint so all your fingers are also covered.
  • Carefully place your hand onto the body of the hedgehog shape to make the hedgehogs spikes with your handprint.


While we've used our hedgehog template you could of course just draw the hedgehog outline yourself - hopefully the template makes this activity easier though!
