This ghost hand puppet craft is a fun way to incorporate pretend play into Halloween story time or your kids favorite Halloween movie.
Do you have a lonely sock basket? If your washing machine eats socks like ours does then this is the perfect craft for you.
Ghost hand puppet
- White fabric
- Patterned edge scissors
- Lonely white socks
- Embroidery thread and needle
- Black fabric marker
Use something large and round (I used serving platters in different sizes) to trace a circle on the fabric.
Cut out the circle using patterned-edge scissors.
Using the embroidery thread and a needle stitch the toe of the sock to the middle of the circle.
Put the sock onto your hand letting the fabric drape down over it. Draw on the eyes and mouth for your ghost with the fabric marker.
Place a few random stitches around the middle of the ghost to attach it to the sock and give it a little more shape.
Use your hand puppet ghost during Halloween story telling or movies with the kids.
