Are you looking for a new preschool Halloween craft to do this month? Check out this blow painted ghost your preschoolers will love!
This Halloween craft is so easy to put together for your little ones. You just need a few simple crafts supplies to set up this activity.
If your little ones don’t know how to blow through a straw, read on to see how they can still help you make these cute ghosts.
Blow-Painted Ghost Preschool Halloween Craft
If your little ones are too young to blow through the straw to make the ghosts, they can still help you make this Halloween craft. They can drip the paint onto the paper. And, they can glue the google eyes on each ghost.
If you want to cut out the ghosts, your little ones can adhere a small magnet to the backside to display on the fridge.
What You’ll Need
• Black Sharpie
What You’ll Do
Have your little one use the pipette to drip dots of paint on the black paper. The more paint they use, the bigger their ghost will be.
Using a pipette is great fine motor practice. They’ll build their fine motor muscles as they pinch the pipette to suck up the paint and then drop it on the paper.
Angle the straw to one side of a paint dot. Blow through the straw to make the ghost body. You control the shape of your ghost by how you move the straw.
Keeping the straw straight will create a long ghost. Moving the straw back and forth will create a wide ghost.
Once the paint is dry, glue some google eyes towards the top of each paint blob. Use a variety of shapes and sizes to make the ghosts unique.
Draw the ghost mouths with a black Sharpie marker. Use a variety of circles, ovals, and uneven shapes to make the ghosts extra spooky.
