This year will be my daughters first Halloween. Our family is dressing up as Monsters Inc. characters! Obviously I know she won’t remember this when she’s older, but it’s still such a fun time and I want to make the most of it.
Halloween just so happens to be one of my favorite holidays! It’s only 2 weeks after my birthday and if you ask my husband – or any of my friends really – they will tell you that I’m a sugar junkie. Therefore, any time I can get my hands on some free candy, you know I will! My daughter isn’t even a year old yet, she can’t have it anyways.

Halloween Puffy Ghost Craft
What you will need :
Step one :
Start by drawing a shape of a ghost – I free handed my ghost drawing, but if you aren’t artistic enough to freehand then you can trace something.
Step two :
Cut out the drawn or traced ghost. After you have cut out the ghost cut out two circles for eyeballs and a bigger circle for a mouth.
Step three :
After you have all of your paper cut into the desired shapes, you can do what I did and cut the cotton balls in half. I have jumbo cotton balls so that’s why I cut them in half. If you’re not worried about the size, skip this step!
Step three :
Now the fun part! After you have everything cut, put a thin layer of glue on the entire ghost shape and give your baby the cotton balls to drop and/or press onto the ghost shaped paper.
Step four :
Once they have finished putting cotton balls all over the ghost shaped paper, then you can glue the eyes on and mouth on after the cotton balls have dried to the paper. I used hot glue to put my eyes on because I wanted it to last longer.
And there you have it, puffy ghost Halloween craft. My baby is 11 months old and she had a blast making it. But this craft would be fun for kids of any age.
