This is a great Halloween Craft Idea that we once added to our daughter's Halloween college care package. It is a Ghosting kit! What is ghosting you ask? It is sending a Halloween wish that passes from one person to another! Think of how a ghost floats invisibly from one place to another. You make a card, goody bag or in our case, this wooden Ghost, leave it on someone's door and hope they do the same to someone else! We bought this one at the craft store and with some paint and markers created this end result! While it is a super cute and easy craft project, how we used it in our daughter's Halloween college care package made it one of her all time favorites!Amazon has these unfinished Happy Halloween Ghost Wooden Cutouts. Just add a coat of paint and personalize and you are good to go!
We sent a Halloween care package filled with Halloween candy, homemade cookies a scary movie and these wooden ghosts to my daughter and her roommate at college. I wrote the poem above and attached it on card stock to the decorations. I added a paint pen so they could personalize the ghosts for their friends. She (the tall blonde) and her college roommate (the brunette who is teeny) then "ghosted" their friends in the dorm.. who in turn made their own ghosts and passed them on to others. The RA told me it was funniest thing he had ever seen. By Halloween almost every dorm door had been "ghosted". Who would have thought college girls could have that much fun with this funny Halloween craft! See some of our other fun and funny college care package ideas.
