Fall is here, which means Halloween will soon be here! What are your kiddos going to be? Laina decided to be Batgirl! Simplicity always has the best Halloween costume patterns and I just fell in love with their super hero costumes this year. I let Laina choose between Wonder women, Supergirl, or Batgirl and of course she went for the one with a mask. Batgirl it is!
I know Halloween party planning will be starting in your classrooms soon so I’ve created a Halloween Ghost Freebie to share. It’s something you can do at your party or before and use it to decorate your room.
What you will need:
Halloween Ghost patterns, photo of craft, & directions (get them here.)
Construction or colored paper: black, purple, orange, peach, & white
Black marker or sharpe marker
Pencil (if you want to trace the patterns)
Here’s a look at my supplies, ready to go! My patterns come with 2 options: patterns where you can print them directly onto construction or color paper and then patterns you can print on to white cardstock and use as tracers. Below I have used the first option and already printed them onto construction paper. At Laina’s age, we like the patterns already drawn on for us!
Included in the pattern set is a photo of what a finished project should look like, use it as a guide! And remember it’s okay if your students don’t look like this when they are done!
Time to cut…and glue.Because Laina is just starting to learn how to glue I like to put an X where she should put glue on her project. This really helps because otherwise she gets glue crazy on me and my table becomes a sticky mess!
If you make the Halloween Ghost Freebie with your kiddos and take photos I’d love it if you share them with me! Especially bulletin boards! I absolutely LOVE seeing my projects in action and there’s a chance I’ll feature your photo on my blog, facebook, or Instagram! You can email them to me at Lb.CraftyBeeCreations@gmail.com
Here’s a few great bulletin board pictures that were shared with me using this pattern! I love how they added the kids eyes to the ghosts and made people guess which ghost was theirs! Here is Laina’s ghost! Found it!
