Let's do some splat painting!

put on contact paper ghosts

1.  Cut out ghosts from contact paper.  Peel them off and stick them onto a stiff piece of paper.  (We always just use this kind of paper.)   (Note:  Maybe I have clumsy fingers, but I find it SUPER HARD to peel off contact paper backing.  So if your child isn't patient, you might want to peel these off and have them ready before starting the activity.)

2.  Cut off the feet from your stockings.  Fill them with corn kernels and tie them up.  Now you've got a splat painting brush!

3.  Cover your work area.   (We always just use this because it's super cheap and durable.)

4.  Pour your paint onto a paper plate and then go at it!

6.  Grab some markers and add cute faces!  


Chuck's 3 and he really liked the activity.  But I bet it would be a really fun one to do with younger kids too.  (And if you're looking for other super easy fall crafts to do with little ones, check out these two super easy fall Toddler crafts and these recycled milk jug pumpkins sun catchers.)
