These cute and friendly ghost crafts are great Halloween projects for toddlers and preschoolers, as they’re easy and require just a couple of supplies each.
When I was a toddler, my very first Halloween costume was a ghost costume. My mother literally cut a couple of eye holes out of a white sheet and draped it over my head. Armed with a little plastic pumpkin bucket, I looked like a character straight out of a Charlie Brown Halloween special.
It was adorable; just like these little ghost crafts the 2 and 3 year olds made here in my daycare.
Although these ghost crafts are really simple, each one provides a creative art process and and/or chance to explore interesting materials.
Easy Ghost Crafts for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Cotton Ball Ghost Craft:
This is my all-time favourite ghost crafts for toddlers. A few cotton balls and some buttons and glue are all that’s required for this activity.
Stretching the cotton balls is great for developing fine-motor skills, and the cotton and the smooth buttons add a sensory element to this craft.
Sponge-Painted Ghost Craft:
These little ghosts started out with a fun print-making activity. Sponges and corks add a sensory element to the activity, and little ones to develop fine-motor skills, hand muscles and hand-eye co-ordination.
Print-Making Ghost Craft:
This adorable ghost craft is a fun way to introduce toddlers and preschoolers to print-making with simple materials.
Footprint Ghost Craft:
Everyone loves a footprint craft, right? Parents love to see their childrens’ wee feet immortalized in an art project, and toddlers and preschoolers will love watching their little footprints transformed into adorably spooky ghosts.
