Paper Plate Ghost! (Easy craft for kids)

My little guy isn't a huge fan of crafts. I'm hoping he'll start liking them more as he gets older. But, for now, I try and think of easy crafts for us to do.

We decided on making a "spooky" ghost together!

Supplies:
Paper plate
Construction paper
Markers
Glue stick/Tape
Scissors
Tissue paper, toilet paper or streamers

He helped by picking the color of the construction paper, gluing some of the pieces on, and letting me trace his hand.

The first thing you need to do is tape or glue tissue paper to the back of the plate.




Streamers and tissue paper can be used as well.



Cut out the eyes and mouth of the ghost. (I added pupils, and circles under the ghosts eyes.)



Trace child's hands, and cut them out. Glue them on the back on the paper plate.


And, there is the final product! Our spooky paper plate ghost! You can also add more decorations, and a string to hang it up. :) We've put our ghost on our fridge.
