How to make a Cotton Ball Ghost Craft for Kids
What you need:
- cotton balls
- black pom poms
- pipe cleaner (or another pom pom)
- cardstock (paper plate is great too)
Step by Step Instructions
Draw a ghost shape on cardboard or on paper plate.
If making this Halloween activity with younger kids, you prepare this step.
Older kids can draw their own ghost.
Cut out the ghost shape out of cardstock or paper plate.
Apply a generous amount of glue (white school glue works great) on a small area and stick on a cotton ball.
Apply more glue and add another cotton ball.
Continue until the whole paper plate or cardstock ghost shaped surface is covered with cotton balls.
Add a generous amount of glue on a black pom pom and stick it on the cotton ball ghost.
Repeat with another black pom pom.
Cut a small piece of black pipe cleaner, bend it into a U shape and apply glue. Stick on to the ghost.
Alternatively you can also use black paper.
All done your cotton ball ghost craft is complete.
