The first time I saw a little foot turned into a ghost was when I got a little one made from foam in the mail. It was so stinkin cute!!! Impressed, I thought to myself, “I’m going to do that!”
Then, I saw this:
Two days later, my son’s kindergarten teacher asked me if I would be interested in doing a Halloween craft for the class.
SWEET!!!! LITTLE GHOST FEET!!!!
was all that ran through my mind for a split second. I was very excited when she liked my idea. :)
Just in case you haven’t seen this around… all you need is white paint, black paper, and supplies to make the ghost face and VOILA! You have preserved your little one’s foot forever.
The kiddos were giddy the WHOLE time I was in the classroom which was super cute. (Yeah, I let a bunch of 5 year olds sweet talk me. Some of them are smooth talkers already! God help their future girl/boyfriends, seriously.) I helped them with the footprint and let them create their own face with googly eyes and a black crayon.
Then, I punched holes along the bottom of the cardstock and threaded a ribbon through the holes.
Each picture is topped off with a little poem that my sister and I made up together over the phone.
The little boy ghosts have a blue sparkly bow tie and the little girl ghosts have a pink sparkly hair bow (sparkle makes everything more beautiful… just ask Bella!)
I was so impressed with each child’s creativity. Even more, I feel so blessed that I was able to share in making this memory with all of them.
So, if you haven’t done this craft with your own kids yet…
GO, DO IT NOW!
I wish I would have done it several years ago the first time I saw it. I am definitely doing it with all of my kids this year (even though Max’s foot is the same size as mine).
