For October's Handprint Calendar, I made an adorable painted hand and foot ghost craft with my son.
- 12 x 12 cardstock
- orange, white, and black paint
- black construction paper
- orange ric-rac
- white glitter
- googly eyes
October Handprint Calendar Ghost Craft Instructions
Paint hand with white paint and place upside-down near top of page.
Paint foot with white and make an upside-down print towards the opposite corner as the hand ghost. I added glitter to the white paint beforehand to make ghosts sparky. (The glitter is white so it is hard to see in the photo).
The O-shaped mouths are made with his thumbprints dipped in black paint.
It's so neat to look back on the handprint and footprint ghosts we made when he was only 1yr old to see how much his hands and feet grew since then!
Finish the October Handprint Calendar page by gluing on a mini calendar and decorating the page however you'd like!
