Here is what you need

  1. 2 x White tissues/paper serviettes (for baby ghost) or 2 pieces of paper towel (for daddy ghost)
  2. Some string (thick string is easier to grip)
  3. Black marker to draw eyes and mouth for a friendly face

Here is what you do

  1. Take out string, toilet paper, facial tissue, paper towel, marker and scissors. Cut 3 pieces of string about 20cm in length.
  2. Help your child take out two single pieces of toilet paper and lay them on a flat surface. Roll one piece into a ball and place it in the centre of the other piece. Pull all corners together then pinch and twist to form the ghost “head”. Tie the string below the head and let the bottom of the tissue flow. Tie the string so you have a short end and a long end to hold on to when “flying” the ghosts. Now help your child add faces with a black or coloured marker. Say “Boo!”
  3. Repeat with the facial tissue and paper towels. You now have a small, medium and large ghost. Fly your ghost around the room!

For even more fun say this rhyme while you play with your ghost puppets!
