What’s that brushing your shoulder and sending shivers down your spine? It’s Harry the Halloween ghost! He’s just swished by while he’s looking for his crafty friends Wanda the Halloween witch and Bertie the Halloween bat. If you’re having a Halloween party or looking for something to hang on the front door for trick or treaters, then this ghost craft is right up your street!
He’s really easy to make and if you place a fan near him his trail will blow in the wind, making him even more scary. The kids love shredding toilet paper and paper plates are fun to put scary faces on – so they’ll have a great time making them – plus there’s hardly any mess – no glue, just Sellotape!
Age group: Kids from 3 years old will really enjoy making these ghosts as they involve painting, cutting and sticking. Just make sure you watch them with the scissors!
