Peek-a-Boo Ghost Craft!

This peek-a-BOO ghost craft is a fantastic Halloween craft for kids!
The happy ghost (on a popsicle stick) pops up out of his decorated cup to say "boo!".
This is a great Halloween craft for preschoolers as the materials are fun and engaging and the end product is a toy.
With a little prep-work, this craft can be adapted for even very young children to do.

Here is what you will need:
•Paper or styrofoam cup
•Ghost template
•Black tissue paper
•Glue stick
•White construction paper
•Halloween stickers
•Popsicle stick

Here is how to make your Peek-a-BOO Ghost Craft:
*Use the scissors to cut a slit big enough for the popsicle stick in the center of the bottom of the cup (Moms and Dads should only do this!)
*Cut the black tissue paper into strips that are manageable for your child.
*Glue the tissue paper onto the cup.

*It works best to have your child coat one section of the cup at a time with the glue and then to go back and glue the loose ends down later.
*Print out your ghost template and cut the ghost out.

*Use crayons to draw a face on the ghost and to decorate if your child wants.
*Glue the ghost to one end of the popsicle stick.
*Decorate your cup with Halloween stickers.
*Insert the popsicle stick into the slit cut in the cup (the ghost goes into the cup) and then show your child how he pops out and says "BOO"!

Great way to work on that /b/ sound, too!
