Hey hey…happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. It’s that time of year where we have a ton of extra candy in the house….send me some will power would you? My friends at Hershey’s sent a ginormous box of candy asking me to share with you a fun Halloween craft idea. Of course my kids think that I must realllllly be important now—since Hershey sent me candy…#ornot.

So I put my creative hat on and thought that I would create something that would be cute to make for Halloween week. These little friendly ghosts would be so cute to do for a classroom party too. It really is easy enough for preschoolers to put together I suppose you could make some with black balloons and spider legs—go crazy I say!

All you will need is some Hershey candy to eat while you craft of course….along with

    • white balloons
    • black contact paper
    • white tissue paper
    • scissors
    • double sided tape
    • dowel rods (you could hang them with clear fishing line too)

  • fold in half 5 pieces of tissue paper and cut until you are about 1.5 inches for center fold. My strips are about 1/2 inches wide.
  • Blow up the balloons
  • Cut out 2 oval  shaped eyes and adhere to balloon.
  • with tape, attach the dowel rod to the bottom of the balloon.
  • Separate tissue and fold at center.
  • Place a long strip of double sided tape on the tissue and stick onto the bottom of the balloon going around the bottom.
  • Repeat with 2 more pieces of tissue for a full effect.
  • BOO!!
