Ghost on a Stick

September 20, 2011

School rules sometimes squish the kids’ fun (but they’re important just the same.) Our school is nut-free and candy-free at Halloween.  But that doesn’t stop the super moms from sending in fun stuff for friends. 

Here’s a creative, non-candy idea for Halloween that’s easy for busy moms. Especially good alternative for sending treats to school.

Pencil Ghosts: Place a cotton ball on the end of a pencil, cover it with a white tissue and cinch the middle with a bit of pipe cleaner or yarn.  It’s fun to spin, and makes sending a pencil a bit more special.  All supplies are readily available at the one dollar store, and the kids can even help to assemble the craft.
