Midnight Magic, is a quick, easy and fun little ghost craftivity, perfect for Halloween party day. This art is called crayon resist, as the wax in the crayons resist the watercolors. Using a white crayon, (press hard) trace the simple ghost pattern onto squares of white paper. Children will not see the ghost 'til they "wash" their paper with the "magical colors of midnight". To their utter delight, a ghost will appear as they are painting.
These cute dangling ghosts are a quick, easy & fun little something to do on Halloween party day, or as a nice activity to transition to after reading some Halloween-themed stories.
