This is fun to do each year so the kids can see how much bigger their "ghosts" are from the last Halloween. You can even use these ghosts to decorate the front of handmade party invites! This is a craft that even the littlest member of the family can join in on.
-black construction paper
-black paint or black permanent marker
1. Paint your child's hand or foot with white paint.
2. Have them place their painted hand or food onto the black construction paper.
3. Let the paint dry.
4. Add eyes and maybe a mouth with your black paint or marker.
5. Cut the "ghost" out and hang it up for a cute Halloween decoration.
|I gave my girls the supplies and let them have at it :)|
I also used this idea from Pinterest to paint my canvas:
|Put push pins into the back of the canvas so it will be off the counter enough to paint sides and not get paint on the counter.|
