Who says ghosts have to be scary? These happy, friendly ghosts are easy to draw and make, even for preschoolers or kindergarten kids.
This project is based on the book, How to Make Friends with a Ghost by Rebecca Green. This charming and art room perfect book offers strategies to not only find ghosts but how to lure them into your world and become friends.
The project requires just a few supplies and is very easy to make. Here’s a video showing you the quick steps:
Give each student a white sheet of drawing paper (sulphite paper), black oil paste (smudgy is good), black and white paper scraps, pink chalk pastel, glue and scissors.
Download this handy drawing guide before you get started:
Drawing with black oil pastel can get a bit smudgy, but for this lesson, that’s exactly what we want.
Draw the ghost using the instructions in the drawing guide. Add a few scribbly lines around the outside of the ghost. Smudge the pastel with your fingers so the white ghosts look like he is moving.
Cut out two circle shapes for eyes and for the mouth too. Or you can draw the mouth with a pastel.
Use the pink chalk to add rosy cheeks. Smudge with fingers.
Cut out ghost with scissors and hang around your art room.
