Halloween looks different for so many this year and because we aren't able to trick or treat, we are creating more craft activities that still add fun to this season. This paper bag ghost is so simple to make and such a fantastic project to make together even with toddler age artists!

Start with:

  • Paper Bag
  • Newspaper
  • Yarn or String
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cardstock


Create it!

Step 1: Crumple newspaper into a ball shape and place it inside a paper bag.

Step 2: Cut a piece of yarn or string and tie the bag closed.

Step 3: Paint the paper bag white and allow it to dry.

Step 4: Cut two eyes from cardstock.

Step 5: Glue the eyes to the paper bag.

Step 6: Optional, cut a bow from cardstock and add it to the ghost.

Make these even simpler using a colored paper bag and add treats instead of the newspaper or hang them as a decorative garland!
