Yesterday I shared a language lesson based around the book Trick or Treat by Leo Landry. I also announced the latest fall language festival giveaway, which includes a copy of the book and a handknit pumpkin hat. Today we are getting crafty with an easy fall craft. In the book, Trick or Treat, the main character of the book, Oliver, is a friendly ghost, so today we will be making ghosts.
Black construction paper
Tissue paper (orange, yellow, and white)
1. Draw your ghost on wax paper and cut out. Place the cut out ghost onto black construction paper and trace around it, creating a larger version of the ghost. Set the construction paper ghost aside.
2. Cut out or have your child help you rip tissue paper into small pieces. Apply glue to the wax paper ghost and help your child place tissue paper pieces on to the ghost. I suggest working in sections, as the glue dries quickly.
Don’t forget to document your child creating his or her masterpiece, with a few photos!
When the entire wax paper ghost is covered with tissue paper it will look something like this.
3. With the ghost cut out from construction paper, cut around the entire middle part of the ghost creating a ghost frame. Then glue your tissue paper ghost into the frame.
4. Allow ghost to dry. Hang in the window and enjoy!!
