For a fun language arts activity for Halloween, have your students become the teacher. Pass out the ghostly paper(s). Set a timer. How many boo boos can they find before the timer rings?
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. Cutting on a spiral provides wonderful scissor cutting practice, which helps strengthen finger muscles. Older students can write on the spiral and complete the prompt: "Things that are creepy to me are . . ." or "Things that I'm a bit afraid of are . . ."
