If you’ve been wondering how to keep yourself and your classroom entertained look no further. Arts and crafts are a great way to stimulate creativity and they’re fun! In the spirit of Halloween, COS decided to make some small cardboard ghosts for our office decoration, this is how to make them.

Step 1:

Using black cardboard and a white crayon create a spooky ghost outline before colouring it in.

Step 2:

Next, using some PVA glue and some joogly eyes of your choosing. Stick the eyes onto your ghost. You could even stick them in different spots to be extra spooky and creative!

Step 3:

To show that it’s night time, add some gold stars around the ghost.

Step 4:

Using your white crayon again make a small circular mouth on your Ghost. Once you’re happy, use the PVA glue to outline your ghost. This will leave a spooky glossy outline (once dried).
