We LOVE to do crafts around here.  But they are not the gorgeous, Pinterest, looks like Martha just was here type crafts.  They are ones actually made by my kids, and supervised by a non-perfectionist Mommy.  And they look like this…

It was supposed to look like this…

This is the one I found on Pinterest and attempted to copy…

Theirs actually looks like a somewhat scary ghost.  Ours ended up looking more like a mutant albino with a strange beard.

But the kids didn’t care, they loved it, had a great time, and were so proud of the ghosts they made.  And that’s what matters, right?

Julia is making scary ghost sounds for all of you…

Draw the hands and shapes for the face and let the kids cut them out.  You’re supposed to use crepe paper for the scary ghosts streamers, but we didn’t have any, so I just let them cut strips of paper.

Then give them some glue sticks and let them go crazy!

If you’re looking for some more fun Halloween crafts, check out our haunted houses we made last week!
