Here’s a quick Halloween project idea you can do with your preschooler in no time at all. This also makes a great Halloween party activity because kids of all ages can make these glowing ghosts and they are very inexpensive to make. You can make any ghost faces you’d like and even use different marker colors. Note: You do need to use permanent markers on the plastic cups.
Materials you need:
- Translucent plastic cups
- Small glow stick – we used the kind that you bend into a bracelet
- Black sharpie marker
How to make glowing ghosts:
- Turn the cup upside down and using the black marker, draw whatever face you’d like.
- Bend on glow stick so that it activates the glow reaction and then place inside the cup, bend facing out.
- Optionally, you can poke a hole in the bottom of the cup, add a string with a knot and hang your ghost where ever you like!
I bought both the cups and glow sticks at Dollar Tree, so was able to make 12 of these ghosts for $2.
