If you are ready to ghost the house and make it boo-tiful, then you need these ghost Halloween decorations to fully decorate your garden and living spaces. Kids love to throw a sheet over their heads and sneak up and down the halls pretending to be haunting. So they’ll be excited to try these ghost products and crafts in October, and most of the supplies needed for the creation process are items you already have on hand.
When I think of ghosts I see Casper’s friendly face, but ghosts are said to be lost souls who haunt homes or lives because they left this earth with unfinished business. While your kids might not be ready for the menacing version of these spirits, there are plenty of friendly and decently spooky performances that add more fun to the holidays for them instead of fear and nightmares.
But if you’re not smart or don’t have the extra time, there are many styles of ghosts you can buy from Party City, Amazon, etc. And children can still be included. They have a choice of glowing ghosts, hanging ghosts, and even ghost acorns. And feel free to modify these DIYs as you like.
Whether it’s handmade or store bought, you’ll be ready to let the haunting begin!
