Boo! Last week I asked Sissy what she wanted to do on her day with mommy. She replied, “Play a game, make a project and play with my dollies.” A list I was happy to oblige. I dreamed up a pumpkin craft I thought would be perfect, but when it game time to make said pumpkin she told me, “No, I want to make a ghost.” So with a last-minute change of plans our pumpkin craft was turned into a super cute Halloween Ghost Craft.
This craft is so easy it could easily be done with toddlers, so I almost called it a toddler ghost craft. But then, sniff sniff, I remembered my almost four year old isn’t a toddler any more! So it is just a kids ghost craft (that toddlers can do too).
For the preschool group, one of the great things about this craft is that it is a great way to practice those cutting skills. (A skill Sissy needs lots of practice with!)
- White paper (I used construction paper)
- Contact paper
- White tissue paper (I used white sparkle paper because I had it)
- Black construction paper
Draw a simple ghost shape on a piece of white paper, let your shape take up most of the paper. Then mimic that shape about an inch inside the larger shape. Cut out the large outline, and then cut out the center.
Place the ghost frame on a piece of contact paper, sticky side up.
Let your little crafter fill the frame with pieces of tissue paper. Placing the black circles on top to form a face.
Hang in the window. Happy Halloween.
