This spooky craft is easy to make and great for entertaining the little ones. With just a few household items you can make these little pop-up ghosts and get the kiddos excited for Halloween!
Check the slideshow at the bottom of this post for step by step pictures of the process.
All you need is a paper or Styrofoam cup, a plastic spoon, tissues, ribbon or string, scissors and a marker!
Start by decorating your cups! We decided to keep it simple and just write “BOO!” on ours. You can also add stickers or color Halloween designs. After decorating the cup, use your scissors or a knife to poke a slit through the bottom of the cup for the handle of the spoon to fit through.
To make your spooky ghosts, roll a tissue or two into a ball, place the ball on the spoon and center 2 tissues on top. Use a ribbon or string to tie the tissues to the spoon.
Using a marker add a face to your ghost and bring the Halloween spirit to life!
Stick the handle of the spoon through the slit in the bottom of the cup and your ghostly creation is complete! Pull the handle to hide your ghost, and push it up to have it peek-a-BOO!
