Students can create spooky ghosts using tissue paper, markers and elastic bands.
By Andrea Mulder-Slater
What You Need:
- white tissue paper
- magic markers
- elastic bands
- yarn or twist ties
- a few sticks (optional).
What You Do:
Gather your materials.
Take a sheet of tissue paper and crumple it up into a small ball.
Take another sheet of tissue paper and wrap and tie it around the bunched up paper (using an elastic band or twist tie), to create a ghostly head.
Now, draw some scary eyes and maybe a mouth too, on the tissue paper.
You are ready to present your ghost to the ghoul of your choice!
Optional: You can make a “ghost on a stick” by placing a stick into the bunched up paper or, tie some clear fishing line to your ghost and hang it from the ceiling for decoration.
Tip: You can use facial tissue instead of tissue paper to make your ghosts.
