My youngest son Jack is in Kindergarten and he has been talking about Halloween ever since they made their October calendar in class! We’ve been talking about pumpkins, trick-or-treating, costumes, and pumpkins over the last few weeks. He told me a few days ago that he wanted to make treats to pass out to class for Halloween and I wanted to make something special, I also wanted something that he could help me make. These coffee filter ghosts are a take on a common Halloween craft of making ghosts with tissues, and they are easy enough for Jack to help me make!
- round lollipops (I used Tootsie Pops)
- coffee filters
- 1/8″ black ribbon
- black marker
Cut a piece of black ribbon and set aside. Take 2 coffee filters and place a lollipop in the center. Gather the filters around the lollipop and twist slightly. Wrap the ribbon around the lollipop and tie in a knot. You can leave it as is, or tie it in a bow.
Draw a face on the ghosts using the marker.
Separate the layers of the coffee filters and fluff to make a full ghost “skirt.”
These ghosts took little time, we finished 30 for his classmates in an afternoon, and Jack is so excited to share with his friends!
