Today, R3 chose GHOSTS!
We made ghosts in all shapes and sizes.
He filled a small Gatorade bottle up with cotton balls and drew a face to make a
Water bottle Ghost (idea from here)
He drew a face on a milk jug to make a
Milk Jug Ghost (idea from here)
We wadded up toilet paper around one cotton ball to make a
Toilet Paper Ghost
Then we had to see if our Toilet Paper Ghost would FLY so he blew and blew.
He created a marvelous design out of shaving cream and a bit of white glue to make a
Shaving Cream Ghost (idea from here)
We painted his foot white, to make a
Painted Ghost (idea from here)
We even made a ghost you could eat!
Just a half of a banana with two chocolate chips for eyes. (idea from here)
We also had fun putting numbered ghosts in order.
I cut out ghosts from white foam and numbered them 1 – 6.
I asked him to put them in order.
We did a listening activity with ghosts on a haunted house. I would say, “put ghost number 6 on the door,” OR “put ghost number 2 on the large square window, ” and so on.
We played “I spy” with a collage of Halloween foam shapes. “I spy 3 white ghosts.” and he would find them and pull them out.
But, our favorite part of the morning was definitely GOING ON A GHOST HUNT!
Have you read, We’re Going on a Ghost Hunt! by Marcia Vaughan? Well it is a spin-off ghost version of the tale, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
We readied our house for a ghost hunt and then set off.
R3 is ready for the hunt with his Jack-o-lantern bucket, puppy and “flashlight” (drum stick); just like the kids in the book.
First, the SPOOKY SWAMP (aka: couch pillows)
Second, HAUNTED HOUSE (aka: any play house you can find around)
Third, BIG BLACK BATS!
Fourth, SKELETON BONES (from Our bodies post)
And finally to a dark cave……….
He found the GHOST! RUN!
