Three Ghost Friends Paper Doll Chain: A Simple Halloween Ghost Craft and Activity


Today my son and I were coloring, cutting, and creating cards for Mom.  In the middle of the madness of spilling crayons and flying paper scraps, I had the idea to make a paper doll chain of ghosts.

How to make two chains of three ghosts from a half of sheet of paper:

Start with a half sheet of paper (5.5" x 8.5").
Fold in thirds.
Trim off the top of the rectangle to make the top of your ghosts. Rotate the paper and do the same to the bottom.
Cut the oval shape in half.
Trim the bottom of the ghost shape to make the bottom of your ghosts. 
Draw ghost faces.
My son said, "I really like this activity!"
He sure did!
The ghost on the right with the purple hair he called the "grandma ghost."
I wish my orange marker worked better. This was an attempt to show coloring mixing (red + yellow = orange) like in Three Ghost Friends: Learn About Colors
