|Halloween Craft: Easy Paper Plate Ghosts|
What is Halloween without witches, skeletons and ghosts? This is a very easy, inexpensive craft that your children will enjoy. My daughter (3 year old) became a ghost making machine when she discovered how fun and simple it was to make these paper plate ghosts!
Classified: Easy. Fun. Great for children of all ages.
What you need:
- Permanent Black Marker (sorry- washables run!) or black crayon
- White dinner paper plate
- White tissue paper
- Sponge Brush
- White glue
What to do:
1. Draw a face onto the back of the white dinner paper plate. My daughter loves happy ghosts!
2. Open up the white tissue paper and place it down so the corner is at the top. Place the plate, face down, on top of the tissue paper.

3. Glue and fold over the top corner.
4. Glue and fold in either side of the tissue paper around the paper plate face.

5. Turn the plate over and mix 2 parts glue to one part water into a cup. Using the sponge brush, paint the glue mixture over the ghosts' head to make the face appear. Note: you can just simply have your child draw the face onto the tissue paper once it has been glued into place. Personally, my daughter and I liked how the face peered through the tissue paper!
