If I was more organized, I would have had all my Halloween posts out before the actual day of Halloween. Alas, I have been planning Logan's third birthday and all our fun Halloween stuff, so I have a couple more Halloween posts coming out in the next couple of days.
Last year, I stumbled upon puffy paint ghosts at No Time for Flashcards. I never got around to trying it out last year, but it was on the top of my to do list for this year.
All you need is:
- 1/4 a cup of white glue
- 3/4 a cup of shaving cream
- some brown craft paper or other thick paper
- Googly eyes
- paper for the ghost's mouth
Dump the shaving cream and glue into a bowl, and have your little helper stir.
Note: No matter how much it looks like marshmallow fluff, do not eat it.
At this point, you can have your little one reach in the bowl and finger paint the ghost outline that you have drawn. Logan didn't want to, so he spread the fluffy concoction with a spoon.
Once the ghost is covered add some googly eyes and a mouth.
Sit back and admire your creation.
Once it is dried, cut it out and display! Happy Halloween!
