Peek A Boo Ghost

(for)Toddler, Pre-K, K

This simple craft will delight your younger child. I made it for my toddler, and he found the disappearing and reappearing ghost hilarious.

For this craft you will need:
  • Paper or Styrofoam cup (I used plastic and it was really difficult to manage, save a McDonald's value meal cup and wash it out and let dry)
  • Popsicle stick
  • White construction paper
  • Glue
  • Paint or markers to decorate the outside
  • Googly eyes (optional)
Decorate the outside of your cup. If you use a left over fast food cup, you may want to paint over the logo, or even cover the entire cup with construction paper or paint.

Cut a small slit in the bottom middle of your cup, just long enough for your Popsicle stick to push through.

Cut a ghost out of white construction paper. If you aren't a fan of ghosts, a pumpkin would be cute too. Draw a face and add googly eyes if you want.

Push your Popsicle stick through the slit at the bottom. Now, glue the bottom of your ghost to the end of your Popsicle stick.

Your ghost will hide inside the cup until he or she is ready to play "peek-a-boo!"
