|Create Goofy Ghosts by making white footprints on black construction paper. Just in time for Halloween!|
|To create sensory stimulation, math skills (how many toes on each footprint?), creative expression, fine motor skills and to practice taking turns.|
|Before You   Start  |
|You will need black construction paper, white paint, paintbrushes, wiggly eyes and glitter glue. A wash bin or nearby area to wash painted feet should be made available.|
|1. Instruct children to remove shoes and socks.
2. Children get a turn to have the teacher paint the bottoms of his/her feet with white paint and then step on their piece of black construction paper.
3. The toes of the painting should face down with the eyes of the ghost on the heel.
4. Allow paint to dry and provide children with glitter glue and wiggly eyes to create their goofy ghost.
5. *This activity can also be done with handprints (closed fingers, face down).
|Encourage children to explore how many arms, eyes, and strands of hair the ghost should have. |
