It's a great one for younger kids.
Paper plates (for the body)
White card stock (for the arms)
Black card stock (for the face)
White Streamers (for the flow on the body)
I drew the arms and the faces and Lulu cut hers out herself and Tom asked me to cut his out for him. I also pre-cut the streamers, these can be as long as you like.
He always has his tongue pocking out when his concentrating!
So they cut out their arms and faces and glued these onto the paper plate.
They then glued the streamers to the bottom also.
We put a hole in the top and tied some string so that we could hang them up on the wall to display.
Prior to this the kids enjoyed running around, pulling their ghosts behind them. The effect was a bit like a kite! (light bulb - another great idea)
They love looking at their ghosts now and are very proud of their craftiness.
This morning at 5.30am my husband was up getting ready for work. He was wonder what was holding the ghost up as it had come off and fallen on the floor. I told him a thumb nail was pushed into the top of the door.
It was still there.
It got me thinking, what in the still of the night happened to make this ghost unwind itself off of the thumb nail (that didn't move) and throw itself to the floor?
We're very much looking forward to Halloween in our home and have a few other little projects up our sleeves.
