Ghost Feet in Kindergarten

Ghost Feet Boy

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!” 

Never happened.

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. 


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.

Ghost Feet Poem

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!)

Ghost Feet

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…


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).

Linking up here this week!


Aw I love how you did the lil' feet with the kid's!!! Extra sassy with the ties and bows too!! I bet the parents are going to love those!! I am obsessed with all hand and foot print art from my kids.. I wish they did more of it at their school.
Good job girl!! Cute lil' poem too!

I love how you did this for the entire class. What a great school project! And the poem you both made up is so perfect. :)

So cute. I'd love if you would share this at my blog link up this weekend. Hope you can make it!

I seen that on Janettes blog and thought that was so cute! I should do those with my kids.

I LOVE this! Ethan is the student of the week this week at school, and I'm supposed to go into class on Wednesday and share a hobby. Would it be crazy to do this with a class full of 4th graders? I'm tempted!

this is too cute, I think it would also make great Halloween wall pictures. Easy and inexpensive, just what I need to fill up a wall.Would love it if you posted at my Sunday's Best party up now. sharing is a good thing!

Ahhhh I LOVE these! If I was still a Kindergarten teacher, I SO would have done this!! :o)

Please feel free to link up to Make Yourself Monday!

For Love of Cupcakes

These are so cool!!! I want to make some now!! But the kiddos are asleep. Tomorrow for sure!

What a cute idea, I haven't seen this before! Thanks for sharing, so glad I saw it now ;)
