Spooky Paper Plate Ghosts

Getting ready for Halloween can be a lot of fun, especially when you make your very own decorations. Let’s start with something simple and super fun: Spooky Paper Plate Ghosts!

Materials needed: paper plates, white paint, black marker, yarn for hanging

You’ll need some paper plates, white paint, a black marker, and some yarn. That’s everything you need to make your ghost!

Step-by-step instructions

First, paint your paper plate all white and let it dry. Make sure you cover it well so it looks like a real ghost. After the paint dries, use the black marker to draw a spooky or funny face on your ghost. Lastly, poke a hole at the top, tie some yarn through it, and now you’ve got yourself a ghost ready to hang!

Decorating ideas

You can get really creative here. Try using colorful markers, stickers, or even glitter to make your ghost extra special. If you want to try something different, you can cut the bottom of the plate to make it look like your ghost has wavy edges!

Safety tips for young children

When you’re painting and cutting, always have an adult to help you. Make sure not to put small decorations like stickers in your mouth. Safety first!

Creepy Crawly Spider Rings

Do you like creepy crawlies? Let’s make some spider rings you can wear to scare your friends!

Materials needed: black pipe cleaners, small black pom poms, googly eyes, glue

For these scary spiders, grab some black pipe cleaners, small black pom poms, googly eyes, and some glue.

How to twist pipe cleaners into spider legs

Take four pipe cleaners and twist them together in the middle. This twist becomes the spider’s body where you will attach the pom pom. Bend each end to look like spooky spider legs.

Attaching the pom pom to create the body

Glue the small black pom pom onto the twisted middle part of your pipe cleaners. This pom pom is your spider’s body.

Adding googly eyes for the final touch

Glue two googly eyes on the pom pom to give your spider a silly or spooky look. Wait for the glue to dry, and your spider ring is ready to wear!
