Creating these little facecloth ghosts is fun and easy and will have kids working on their fine motor skills.

Making the Ghosts

I came up with the idea for these little ghosties while in the shower. Little did I know my daughter would latch onto the concept so severely that we would quickly run out of terrycloth. I am not exaggerating when I tell you we have at least forty of these swirling around our house – with more (paper versions) in production.

What You Need:

  • facecloths (or paper towels)
  • cotton batting, or a bouncy ball, or a styrofoam ball
  • elastic bands
  • googly eyes, eye stickers or self stick gems

What You Do:

Grab a facecloth (or a sheet of paper towel).

Drape cloth over some cotton or a bouncy ball, and tie off with an elastic band.

Attach eye stickers, self-stick gems or googly eyes.

Note: Use stickers or tape instead of glue for the eyes if you would like to eventually reclaim your facecloths.
