Glue Ghosts

This craft is perfect for young children who love to pour glue all over everything. Be sure to make these ghosts a day in advance, as they need roughly 10-12 hours to dry.

Materials:

  • Glue
  • String, yarn or pipe cleaner
  • Waxed paper
  • Craft stick or plastic spoon
  • Googly eyes
  • Construction paper (for the mouth)

Directions:

  • For each ghost, lay a piece of string in the shape of a ghost onto a piece of waxed paper. Be sure to leave the bottom part open.
  • Have your kids pour glue to cover the entire ghost area. Use a plastic spoon or craft stick to make sure the glue is spread evenly.  Note: the thicker the glue, the longer it takes for the ghost to dry.
  • Add personality by placing googly eyes and a construction paper mouth onto each ghost.  Let dry for about 10-12 hours.
  • Once dry, peel each ghost off the waxed paper. Trim rough edges if necessary.
  • Poke a hole at the top of each ghost with a pushpin and thread a piece of string through the hole for hanging. Bootiful!!!!!!!!!
