Halloween is upon us! Now that my child is getting older we are starting to enjoy the love of crafting together. I am in no way a crafty person, I could probably have an entire page dedicated to “Pinterest Fails”, but I try and I am learning that 2 year olds really don’t care how symmetrical or pretty things are. Here are the directions for the Spooky Soft Ghosts that we made last week. Have fun!
- Foam or cardstock
- Cotton balls
- White glue
- Hole puncher
- Paint brush or something else to spread glue with
- Plate or bowl for glue
- Googly eyes, felt pieces or something else to make a mouth and eyes with
What to do!
- Cut the foam or cardstock into a simple ghost shape (I used a pen to make the shape and then cut)
- Squeeze some glue onto a disposable plate or container
- Have your child paint the glue onto one side of the ghost
- Give your child some pieces of cotton to stick all over the glue covered ghost (this can get sticky so some wipes or washcloth is a good idea)
- Have your child stick eyes and a mouth on the cotton covered ghost
- Use a hole puncher to make a hole in the top of the ghost
- Use some ribbon to make a handle so that you can hang your ghost up or use it to fly around the house
