Instructions For Your Paper Bag Ghost:
Step 1. Cover the paper bag with bond paper. Cut out the remaining bond paper on both sides.
Step 2. Use a marker to trace a ghost from the paper bag and cut it out.
Step 3. Carefully cut two circles and one big oval shape from the black-colored paper. Use glue to paste these cutout pieces onto the paper bag.
Step 4. Cut two oval shapes from the pink-colored paper and paste them into the paper bag as well. Place them between the fold of the paper bag and cut it.
Step 5. If you have googly eyes with the adhesive backing, let your child place the eyes. If not, you can add the googly eyes with a glue gun or let your child use a glue stick.
Step 6. Draw the ghost’s hand with three fingers each in cardboard or any hard paper you have and cut it out.
Step 7. Attach these hands to each side of the paper bag. And finally, your Ghost is now ready, AH-WOOOOO!
