Halloween Ghost Foot Prints!

Pin It
Halloween is a big holiday for me, I love dressing up in costumes, seeing kids in their costume and my new love for halloween is dressing Rory up in a costume.  Last year we were down in Florida with Rory’s Doctor until October 30th, so I wasn’t able to decorate as much as I normally do.  Although I already had Rory’s costume made before our Florida trip, I wasn’t able to decorate the house as fun and spooky as I would have liked.   

However....before our trip, we made foot print ghosts to send to her St. Louis Family that we desperately miss.  This has to be one of my favorite crafts with Rory.   
Materials Needed:
  • Black paper (or if you use white paper like we did, you will need black paint)
  • White paint
  • Black paint or a black marker
  • paint brush
  • water to wash paint off
This project is so cute and a lot of fun to make.  We made sure we did this activity outside because it can get messy since your little one will have paint on their feet.   If you are using a piece of white paper, cover the paper with some black paint.  You can cover it all with the black paint or leave some of the boarder white, like we did.  Once the black paint is dry you can begin making your ghosts!

For the spooky ghosts, paint the bottom of your little ones foot with white paint.  Make sure you get the whole foot covered; toes, heel, etc...  The toes are going to be the bottom of the ghosts and your little ones heel will be the top, just to keep in mind for the foot placement on your paper.  

After your child's foot is fully painted, make a nice footprint on the paper.  Rory and I made a big ghost and a little ghost, I painted my foot white and pressed it on the paper too, feel free to do anything you would like!  Let them dry.  When they are dry, with your child's toes facing the bottom of the paper,  you can make eyes for the ghosts.  

Thats it!  You are all done with adorable footprint ghosts!  This is by far one of my favorite Halloween crafts, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
