For this Halloween series we decided to go with one of our favorite Halloween books and make a fun ghost craft on the light table!
Five Little Ghosts by Patricia Hegarty – “Five little ghosts at the end of the day are on the lookout for somewhere to play. Follow the adventures of five little ghosts in this comical rhyming caper!” This is a cute book with simple rhymes & bright illustrations. The girls had a great time reading this and thought that the little ghost were so silly.
Materials Needed for Ghost Craft:
First I cut the ghost shape out of construction paper, just fold it in half and cut out the shape and center, then placed the ghost outline on a piece of contact paper.
After I cut off the excess contact paper from the edges of the ghost template the girls grabbed some tissue paper and started sticking them to the contact paper.
They ended up as the perfect window decorations!
