Halloween crafts are our favorite projects to make. Our neighborhood gets very festive for Halloween and the kids want our house to be as “boo-tiful” as the rest. Lately they keep telling me our house isn’t spooky enough. They think we have plenty of pumpkins but need more ghosts and spiders. I was trying to think of a craft they could easily make that was big and scary…. so meet our Toilet Paper Ghosts.

We got spooky Halloween pajamas from Boden that glow in the dark. That REALLY upped our Halloween “spooky-ness” and the kids have been wearing them non-stop, day and night!
This is such an easy Halloween craft and you probably have all of the supplies at home already. We made a smaller version at a preschool class Halloween party a few years back and the kids loved it. Here’s how to make a Toilet Paper Ghost
Spooky Toilet Paper Ghosts
Paper plate, black paper (or draw onto plate with black marker), glue & toilet paper
Cut out 2 circles and 1 oval from the black paper. Glue them onto the paper plate to make the ghost face. You could also draw the ghost face on with black marker. Turn the plate over and glue long strips of toilet paper onto the back of the plate. Turn the plate back over & admire your spooky ghost!
Our glow in the dark Halloween pajamas come from this year’s Mini Boden Halloween Hullabaloo line. You can easily get into the spooky Halloween spirit with Boden’s line of Halloween clothes which includes: terrifying tops & t-shirts, dare to scare dresses, & petrifying pajamas. Boden’s Halloween clothes for kids are ready to scare, but yet so comfortable since everything is 100% cotton. Tommy loves his Halloween shirt and I have a feeling he’ll be wearing this bat tee long past the holiday.
