I love Halloween and can’t wait until next year when we will start taking Boo out ‘Trick or Treating’. Until then, we always sit on our sofa with the curtains open watching everyone call at all the houses and listening to Boo squeal with delight each time our doorbell goes.
This year we have decided to decorate the front door of our house so we really need to start thinking about what we are going to use. Spooky fluffy ghosts maybe……..
What You’ll Need
- 1 x A4 white card
- Black card – just some small leftovers will do
- Cotton wool
- PVA glue (& spreader)
I very roughly cut out the shape of a ghost from the A4 white card and let Boo get on with sticking the cotton wool on. He loved the way the cotton wool kept sticking to his fingers and spent ages just pulling it apart.
I’m really impressed at how far he has progressed in just a few weeks in terms of his ability to sit and concentrate on our activities. Whenever I ask him if he wants to make something he runs off and fetches his splash suit shouting “Make, Mummy, Make!”
When he had covered the card, we used the leftover black card to cut out two eye shapes and a mouth and then glued those to our spooky creation too…
Ta Dah! Fluffy Ghost!
Definitely one for the front door on Halloween!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
