Simple Halloween Art Activity

24 Oct

I remember cutting out Halloween shapes from construction paper as a kid and hanging them on our windows as decorations for the trick-or-treaters to admire. Boy have times changed and houses really get tricked out for Halloween.

Here’s a simple Halloween decoration you can make with your kids to trick out your house.

  • Draw a ghost on a 12″ x 18″ piece of white construction paper with a black marker.

  • Use orange paint to paint the one hand of your child.

  • Place your child’s hand on the ghost near where an arm would be.

  • Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the other hand.

  • Let the ghost dry, then cut it out.
  • Hang it in the window for your trick-or-treaters to admire.

Write your child’s name and date on the ghost and you will be able to see how little their hands were.
