Egg Carton Friendly Ghosts
J made up a song about 5 little ghosts based on the 5 speckled frogs song and it inspired me to revist our 5 Little Speckled Frogs Craft from the spring so we got out an egg carton and made 5 Little Friendly Ghosts.
I first cut up a egg carton into the individual egg holders and then sorted out some white paint for J. He then went ahead and painted the cartons.
We then added googley eyes to the ghosts and J drew a mouth on each of them. I’m going to add them to our halloween decorations and hang them from our curtain pole or paper chains with some elastic so that they will hang spookly in the windows.
Cookie Cutter Ghouls
I’ve been wanting to do some cookie cutter printing for a while and in my big box of cookie cutters I have a selection of Halloween so I set J up to do some cookie cutter printing.
J loves printing we hadn’t done cookie cutters before so he was over the moon to do something different and set about quickly. He discovered quickly that using the sharp side of the cookie cutter was least effective so turned it around and asked for more paper.
We’ve had a lot of fun making these – the first part was done in an hour and then the second adding the eyes and mouths took around 30 mins so it really is a quick craft for Halloween.
