When it comes to Halloween crafts, there are so many to choose from. From toilet paper monsters to Halloween masks to painted pumpkins. Kids love being creative, and they also enjoy making something that can be placed for all to see. This ghost craft is extremely simple, yet gives kids the chance to practice their scissor skills, using glue and making something of their own. It is really great for all ages. Their ghosts can look however they choose, as they can use their creative side to come up with clever ghost faces.
