Ghost Craft

Paper crafts are great, because they’re simple and rely on craft supplies you’ve likely got in your closet already.

This ghost craft will help preschoolers strengthen motor skills as they get creative with this simple project.

What You’ll Need

What You’ll Do

Draw a ghost shape on the white paper with a pencil. A pencil is best so that you can erase mistakes during the process.

The shape of the ghost can vary. The bottom of the ghost can be straight, wavy, or shaped like it’s flying. Feel free to get creative with this part if desired.

Next, cut out the ghost. If your shape is super simple, this is a great opportunity for preschoolers to strengthen their scissor skills as they cut on the line you drew.

Glue the googly eyes onto the ghost face. Add the ‘eyebrows.’

Draw the mouth with a black marker. You can make the mouth an “o” shape, circle shape, or an oval shape.

Finally, glue the ghost to the black paper.
