Spooky Ghosts

A few weeks ago, our family made a few spooky ghosts to put on our front porch.  It didn't take very much time and was really easy.  Everyone loved this project!  My 1 and 3 year old even got involved, with the help of Dad. 


Materials:
Cheesecloth
Liquid Starch
Items to form the ghosts, we used plastic cups and foil

Put the liquid starch in a bowl.  Drench the cheesecloth in the liquid starch and wring out.  Form the cheesecloth into desired shape and let dry.  

We did this in the evening and the kids were so excited to run outside and see their ghosts all dried and ready to spook a few people.

Just a note: if the ghosts get wet, they will lose their shape.  A few of our ghosts got hit by a rainstorm and "melted" if you will. :)
