Week two with the awesome Ghostbusters theme, this week I have some super simple and awesome crafts you can try at home. Remember these crafts are not just for Ghostbusters, you can also use them for Halloween too! I have included a button to my Halloween blog post I did last year for loads more ideas. You can also find the first week of Ghostbusters fun below where I showed you how to make your own slime.
It's not long until my brand new show Halloween Havoc, Myself and fellow entertainer John Johnny are teaming up to create a brand new Halloween experience. This party is going to be all sorts of awesome with a brand new Spooky magic Show from me, Halloween Games, prizes, fancy dress, eerie disco, petrifying photo booth and loads more. For this week only I am running a competition on Facebook for a free family of four ticket. There are not many tickets left now so make sure you take advantage of this. Click on the picture opposite for more details on Halloween Havoc.
These are super cute and easy to make. I think they make a nice little gift for Halloween or as part of a snack dox for a Ghostbusters movie marathon. Maybe you want to catch up on the classic films before watching the new one.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Black Sharpie
- small elastic bands, or maybe use loom bands if you have some laying around
- Thin orange and black ribbon
Here we go, Use one full size tissue, and another tissue that has been cut into quarters. Take the quarter piece of tissue and put it in the center of the full sized tissue. This will help to hide the colour of the lolly pop underneath the tissue. I tried it first with just one layer of Kleenex, but you could definitely see the lolly pop through it. Two layers worked much better to hide the colour.
Bunch up the tissue over the lolly pop and stretch the elastic over it to hold it all in place. The elastics that I used were small enough that I only had to go around once. Make eyes with the sharpie and tie the ribbon around a bow.
Paper Plate Ghost
This is a cool craft and it works brilliantly with the silly string guns I showed in last weeks post which you can find here. You can hang a bunch of these paper plate ghosts all around the place and have the kids try to shoot them with the silly string guns. So how do you make them?
You'll need -
- Paper plates
- White Crete Paper
- Normal white paper (could use card)
- Black Sharpie
- Glue Stick
First you'll need to print out these templates on paper or card stock. Cut out the two vale and colour them in using the sharpie. Make sure you don't miss out pupils for the ghosts eye's using the sharpie pen. Now take the two arms and mouth from the template. Glue the facial features to the front of the paper plate. Glue the arms to the back of the paper plate.
Cut crepe paper into five strips, 24 inches long each. Glue crepe paper to the back of the paper plate so that they hang down from the bottom.
One last thing before I let you go for the week, here is a free Ghostbuster's Trap. Just click on the picture and print it out on A4paper or even better card stock if you can. It's a very small trap when it's built but I think the kids will have a blast building them and playing with them.
