You can’t talk about Halloween and not think about ghosts. This holiday is about ghost stories and spooky stuff but as this may be too much for young kids, let’s instead create a fun and non-spooky ghost headband?
Craft 4 Different Ghost Paper Hats
The ghost headband comes with four printable template options. Each ghost has a different friendly face and kids can pick their favorite to go on their Halloween paper hat.
You can even encourage your little ones to color or decorate their ghosts for a more personal touch. Draw hairbows for the girl ghosts and bowties for the boy ghosts.
Perfect for the Classroom Halloween Party
Make ghost paper hat crafting part of your classroom Halloween party. Have each student pick their own ghost to cut out and tape together.
These paper crowns are a nice activity to help preschoolers work on their scissors cutting skills. Of course, the headbands are great for older kids, too.
Because there are four ghost options, you can create four Halloween stations and have a ghost for each station. For those who would like to create their own ghost, the craft template comes with two blank options – just the ghost shape. Kids can draw the eyes, mouth and any other details.
For a variety of Halloween paper hats, here are a few more options:
Ghost Headbands for Family and Friends
You can make crafting part of your Halloween tradition and spend quality time together with your little one creating non-scary decorations or keepsakes.
Make matching paper hats before you go treat-or-trick or decorate your house with some fun DIY Halloween decorations you can easily make with kids.
Take these Halloween paper cup crafts, for instance. They are easy to make and so cute to place on your fireplace mantel or outside your house on the Halloween night.
If you are organizing a Halloween party with friends and neighbors, set up a crafting table for young kids where they can make paper hats or play the Roll a Jack-O-Lantern game.
