It's an oldie but goodie! Jack made this ghost back around Halloween.

He made it a school. It's one of the crafty things his sweet teacher has them do. It's tissue paper that was folded over then a tie was added to make a head and then the bottom was left loose to form a body.

Jack loves this little ghost. When they sent it home from school, I initially hung it in the car next to his uber safe booster seat. He loved having it there and would say, "Ghost, ghost!" as he batted it around.

I guess Jack's real contribution to the ghost was it's face.

He seems to like red.

So, of course, the ghost was one of the first things I put up on the new craft wall I designated for Jack. In this shot, you get a two-fer--Jack colored that bear really well after I added some wiki-stix to help distinguish the border.

Love the ghost, Jack! What a fun idea for a project :) And great idea for using wiki sticks to define a coloring border too -- I didn't even think about them being able to stick to paper like that. Nice work on the coloring, Jack!

Oh ..I loved making those ghosts as a kid. We haven't done them here in awhile. Jack's looks really cool.
Love the idea for the border line. What are wiki sticks though?

He looks like a very friendly ghost.

I love the idea of adding wiki-stix!

I used to make ghosts out of kleenex! :)

That is too perfect -- exactly the kind of things my kids love to play with the most!

The things they make have so much more personality to them.
