Cotton wool ball ghost craft for toddlers

Why not share this post!

This cotton wool ball ghost craft for toddlers is a classic Halloween craft activity. I have memories of making a similar craft when I was at school. This is a Halloween craft that we would often make with the children, and it's one that the older kids can participate in too.

Cotton Wool Ball Ghost Craft for Toddlers

We had a lot of fun with our cotton wool ghosts today and I'm excited to share it with you as part of our Day 3 Toddler Halloween Craft Challenge (you can still sign up here and you will get a new craft each day). Yesterday's crepe paper pumpkin seemed very popular and I loved seeing you sharing your posts in our Facebook Group and over on Instagram.

If you like to match books with your craft activities, 5 Little Ghosts (available HERE) is a great one.

This is a really simple craft activity and one that doesn't take long to set up - they're the best kind!

How to make your cotton wool ghost craft

Draw a ghost outline on the black card. There is no 'rule' about what shape your ghost is. Don't overthink it - any shape will work!

2. It's easier to have your child apply the glue to the card and then stick the cotton wool balls on. If they are a bit young, you can help out with the gluing part.
