Read This, Made That {Wispy Ghost}

I have fond memories of listening to Curious George books as a child.  There’s something about that curious little monkey that’s been touching children for generations.  In fact, George’s “Original Adventures” began publication in 1941 (source Wikipedia).  It’s no surprise that Curious George Goes to a Costume Party became a family favorite among our Halloween book collection.  In this story, George attends his first costume party, and accidentally startles party goers as he appears to be a ghost.

In the spirit of this book, we loosely used an idea from Happy Hooligans to make cotton ball ghosts.  To create our ghosts, I pulled cotton balls into thin wisps.  Next, I squirted glue onto black construction paper into the shape of a ghost and let the quads stick the wisps over the glue.  Finally, I let them choose a pair of googly eyes to stick on the top and a pre cut black oval for a mouth.

Instead of using black googly eyes, I let the kids choose their own color. Rylin naturally chose pink…



Psst….If you give one of our projects a try, we’d love to see your handiwork.  You can share them on our Facebook site.
