3yrs-to whenever

My daughter and I just did this craft, will post pics once they're dry and hung up.

Glue Ghosts!!

Get some Elmer's glue- not stick.

and pour some on wax paper, use a spoon to spread it out, leave it kinda thick) in the shape you want your ghost to be.

When you have a good shape use buttons, construction paper, eyes, and other things to decorate your ghost.

Then let it dry over night, it may take longer than that depending on how thick the glue is.

Then peel off and hang around the house.

I'm thinking they will also stick to windows and other glass surfaces too- but we'll see for sure once they're dry.

we just got done peeling our ghosts off the wax paper and hung them on the glass of our front door.

we didnt have any white elmers glue so we used the purple gel craft glue that we had so they are tinted purple.  to hang them i put a drop of the gel glue at the top and bottom and on the arms of our ghosts since they wouldnt stick otherwise.

heres a pic:

Adorable!!! And my son loves them too. We'll be making some tomorrow (as long as my cranky daughter cooperates long enough). My son is excited!
