Our house is seriously lacking in Halloween decor this year and it’s bumming me out. I tried to get our decorations out of our storage unit but failed. Failed because as soon as I realized I would need to move no fewer than 12 million boxes to reach the “seasonal decorations,” I gave up.
We needed something around here to put us in the Halloween spirit, however, so the kids and I did a little art project that I’d seen on Pinterest recently. Thank you to my cousin for pinning this idea, and to Clean & Scentsible for blogging it!
These paper plate ghosts required few supplies, were easy for young children to create, and make the kids happy to see them hanging from the ceiling. A winner in my book!
To make these ghosts, all you need are the following supplies:
- paper plates
- toilet paper (or white streamers, if you prefer a classy ghost)
- glue (we used school glue and glue sticks)
- black paper
- googly eyes
Just have fun with your kids putting these together! They are so simple, and are able to be completed in an amount of time that keeps your kids engaged.
My daughter gets so excited to show visitors to our home our “scary” ghosts hanging from the ceiling.
I think I have some other kid-friendly Halloween ideas up my sleeve, so check back for future posts on that. Until then, BOO!
