I have a couple ghost crafts for Halloween coming up, I guess I’ve been in a ghost-y mood.
This one is a simple ghost craft that a preschooler can make using scissors. Its a great cutting activity for them to practice!
These spiral ghosts are one of the 15 ghost crafts for kids to make for Halloween.
On a piece of 12×12 white scrapbook paper, I drew a spiral.
I started on the corners, just rounded them out.
And then drew a spiral going inwards. Leaving the center bigger than you think is necessary because that is the ghost’s face.
Last Christmas, we made spiral Christmas trees if you’re looking for more ideas!
George then cut along the lines. Cutting off the corners first.
Then he started in on the spiral!
He told me it was pretty hard to do. But he could do it.
Once the spiral is cut to the center, then George added a face for the ghost.
What makes up a ghost face?
I told George its usually a long black mouth, showing him with my mouth. And then two black eyes over top.
I think he did an excellent job making his ghost face!
I’m not sure if he was rushed or if the spiral really was hard for him to cut. His spiral got kind of jagged-y when he usually cuts very smoothly. (Take a look at the hearts he cut this past Valentine’s Day.)
Even so, its still a pretty awesome ghost!
We have it hanging above our dining room table right now.
After we made our spiral ghosts, I found this free printable to make your own from One Creative Mommy. Her’s are a little different than ours, so check them out!
