Footprint Ghosts

These will make a great memento! Its a wonderful craft for Halloween and I don't think I've seen cooler (or cuter) looking ghosts!

Footprint ghosts

What you'll need:
White paint
Black cardboard
Wet wipes
Scissors
Brush

We did this craft with both the 3.5 year old Emma and 3 month old Lia!  It was great fun, Emma even helped me paint Lia's foot!  She also painted mine! Although my foot definitely did not make any cute looking ghosts!

Cut a rectangular shape out of black cardboard.  Big enough to fit a small foot! Paint your child's foot white using a brush and stamp it on the paper.  Using wetwipes wipe off a little bit of paint on the heel of the footprint to make ghost's eyes and mouth (and wipe your child's foot).

We had a lot of fun with this one and it makes a lovely decoration.  You could also make many footprints, cut them out and add them to the Halloween Wreath we made a few days ago.  There are many possibilities.
