Straw Blown Ghosts
Using straws is a fun way to produce art with kids - we use reusable straws that we have in our painting equipment box and wash them thoroughly before putting them in again. You can see how we used them to create a tree for a family tree project with our preschool as part of our Virtual Book Club for Kids.

How to Make This Straw Blown Ghost Craft with Toddlers and Preschoolers
- Use the pipette to create dots of paint on the black construction paper. The more paint, the bigger the ghosts.
- Take the straw and angle it towards one side of the paint dot.
- Blow through the straw, the paint will move down away from you. You can control the direction of the paint by moving the straw.
TOP TIP: Keep the straw straight to create a long ghost. Move the straw slightly back and forth to create a wider, flared ghost. However, keep the straw angled on one side of the paint dot don't swap sides.
- Allow the paint to dry then flip the art around so the rounded edge is now at the top.
- Stick the wiggly eyes towards the top of the paint blobs.
- Then use a black sharpie to add mouths to the ghosts. Give them different shaped mouths so that they each have their own personalities.
