We had a bit of Halloween fun around here yesterday. Molly was home from school because of a PD Day for the teachers and I needed something fun and easy to do that would satisfy the age range I have around here during the day.
I went with ghosts.
Super simple and I had all the stuff on hand, or rather, I made it up based on what I had on hand!
Styrofoam cups, black permanent marker, string, white tissue paper, glue stick, and a wooden skewer to poke holes.
First, we drew faces:
Then I poked a hole in the top of each cup:
I tied a knot in the string and poked it through the hole from the inside out (with some “help”):
Glue stick around the inside edge:
And the kiddies stuck on the strips of tissue:
Aren’t they fun?
The kiddies had a blast making them:
Next up…. pumpkins? Or footprint ghosts? Any suggestions?
