These little handprint ghosts look like they are saying, “Boo,” with their hands up ready to trick anyone who is watching on Halloween night. This craft is simple to make and adorable to look at because it features your kiddos handprints and their artwork. No ghost will look the same and since ghosts don’t have a definite shape, anyone who can hold a paint brush can paint one.

Have child paint a ghost on the paper however they like. Little Tiger painted an outline and then colored it in and added dots around the edge. Little Dragon went for a more freestyled approach adding swishes and dots where he pleased. Set aside to dry.

Cut out the handprints.

Have child glue on the handprints and googly eyes, and then have them use the pen to draw a mouth. Now their little ghost is ready to say, “Boo!”
