Halloween Kids Craft: Paper Plate Ghost Tutorial

This is not my original idea. We like to make crafts quite a bit, so I found this idea on the web while looking for fall and Halloween crafts. You can find many variations of what people use as far as materials and whatnot. 🙂 This craft was very simple and even my 20 month old daughter was able to participate with assistance.

What You’ll Need:
Paper plates
Googly eyes
Cotton balls
Black construction paper
Glue (we used glue sticks, but I recommend regular glue, because the cotton balls didn’t stick as well with the glue sticks)

Making this craft is fairly simple. It only required items we mostly have around the house. The only thing I had to purchase was the googly eyes and the paper plates. It’s usually the four kids vs. me, so I like to organize craft time ahead of time. That meant separating the supplies among each child.

First, we cut out the shapes for the face and the kids glued on the pieces and googly eyes. Afterwards, we simply poked a hole in the top of the plates in order to hang the ghosts. For this, you could use a pencil or hole punch depending on what you have on hand.

The finished product:

    What a fun activity. I'll have to do this with my four year old. He loves fun projects like this.
