Last week, we had a mommy and me movie day where we watched the movie Casper and did ghosts crafts & snacks. As one of the crafts, we made our yearly Footprint Ghost Pictures. This year I decided to make it with a spooky scene. My little guy loves it! I traced his hand and arm, then painted it to look like a leafless tree. I traced a circle shape for the moon using a small glass. His footprints were made on green construction paper which I then cut out and glued in place. The mouth is a black thumbprint and the eyes are black fingerprints.
He made the Handprint ghost picture all by himself. He painted his left hand white and pressed it where he wanted on the paper. He is one of those kids that always has to everything lined up all perfectly so all his ghosts are in a straight line! He made his own facial features and then wrote “BOO!” at the bottom.
This will be Baby Girl’s 1st Halloween and was so excited to get her in on the tradition. I made 2 Footprint Ghosts and 1 Handprint Ghost on orange construction paper, cut them out, & then glued them in place on black construction paper. The little bows are made with 1 fingerprint and 2 thumbprints. I printed the words “Baby’s 1st Halloween,” cut the words out and made a frame for them by gluing them to the green/yellow construction paper. It’s so fun to compare it to her Big Brother’s 1st Halloween Footprint Ghosts!
