As we began this project, I mentioned to Wy-man that we were going to use paint and he immediately became ecstatic. (He must love it when they paint at daycare.)
Step one of our ghost making was to paint the foot and make footprints on black paper. (I wasn't able to get a photo of this since I didn't trust him to sit there patiently with white paint on both feet...because of course we couldn't just tickle one foot. It had to be both!)
I then thought it would be fun to do thumbprint pumpkins on the envelopes. And as you all know, Wy-man is in the "My do it!" stage so he had to paint his own thumb...
(too bad this one had his eyes closed, but it was too ornery not to share with you)
We let the paint dry and a couple days later created thumbprint eyes. (This is when he sang me his ABCs...and that video is posted from earlier on in the week.)
Here's the final product that we sent out to a few family and friends...Wy-man was quite proud of his ghosts!
And, Mama wanted to get a little creative so I even drew a spider and spider web as a part of the return address label. (I am such a nerd, I know!)
