This week I did something with my daughter that was really fun. I love crafts with her. She is finally at the age where she will sit and do what I ask without making a total mess, although that is sometimes fun too. So today I will be sharing the art and craft of ghost feet. We decided to make one for each set of her three grandparents and one for us of course.
Here is what you need:
- Black Construction Paper
- White Paint
- Paint Brush
- Baby Wipes
- Google Eyes
- Black and Silver Sharpie
- Toddler hands and feet
Make sure if your little one likes to make a mess don’t forget to put down a sheet or plastic pad, anything you can clean paint off of.
Lay out all materials in advance. This is the best way to make sure things go smoothly.
Step 2: Take a brush and apply the paint onto your child’s feet. I had my daughter sit down because she cannot balance yet but you could easily have them stand if they are older. You could also have them step into the paint but I found using the brush helped control the amount of paint so it was not muddled.
I was able to use regular baby wipes to get all of the paint off. Dry paper towels were not doing the trick but these worked well.
Step 3: For fun, I decided to add the hands as well. We needed more than one size of ghost. It is the same as the hands. Apply the paint and press on the paper.
Step 4: Let it dry. During this time I figured out what I wanted to make the eyes and mouth with. I let it dry overnight to make sure I could draw on the paint.
Step 5: Add the eyes, mouths, and message! I used candy eyes for the bulging eyes but you could also use plastic google eyes. I took a sharpie and drew on the mouths. A silver sharpie was used for the message to Grandma and Grandpa. I also let my daughter sign her name to her creation. She was so beyond proud!
I hope that you love, ghost feet! A cute and simple craft for Halloween. I am looking forward to finding other fun crafts but this was just SO CUTE!
What are some of your favorite creatures to create on Halloween??
