Passing some time yesterday, we made a really simple Halloween craft. We used some butcher paper, but freezer paper would be great also.  Decide how long you want your garland, then accordion fold. Draw your ghost on the top. We have a template if you like.

Paper Ghost Garland Template

Cut your ghost out making sure to not cut around the hands.

Draw faces on each ghost

It wasn’t too long before someone decided the faces should be pink!

If I can find some long orange paper we will be making pumpkins!  I think it would be funny to see all of the different faces she could come up with!
