Gluey Ghosts


    White paper towels-3 per child Bottle of glue Disposable 9x13 pan Cardboard toilet paper tubes Black markers Newspaper

    Cover your tabletop with newspaper-this is going to get messy! Pour a bottle of white glue into the pan. Dilute with spoons full of water, mixing together the water and glue until the consistency becomes thin. Have each child crumple one paper towel into a fairly tight ball. Then wrap the second paper towel around it. Stuff this into the top of the paper towel tube. This is the ghost's head. One at a time, have the children dip their remaining paper towel into the pan of diluted glue, keeping the towel as flat as possible. Allow the excess to drip off over the pan, and then drape the wet paper towel over the top of the cardboard tube. Set these aside to dry overnight. When the gluey ghosts have dried, use a black marker to draw on a face.
