Black paint or a black marker

This activity is quite messy and you can select balcony or backyard for making ghosts footprints. It needs to paint the feet of your child and if you want you can also paint your foot too. And have a fun together to make ghosts footprint. It’s best to take dark black paper and then make a footprint using white paint. For actual footprinting  paint the bottom of your child’s foot with white paint.  Make sure you get the whole foot covered; toes, heel, etc. The toes are going to be the bottom of the ghosts and your little one’s heel will be the top – just keep this in mind for the placement of their footprints on your paper. After your child’s foot is fully painted, stamp their footprints on the black paper.  You can make various combinations as well and let it dry. When they are dry, with your child’s toes facing the bottom of the paper,  you can make eyes for the ghosts. You are all done with adorable footprint ghosts.  This is an awesome Halloween craft.

6)Make Glow in the Dark Cards

What do you need :
(glow in the dark )Paint
paint brushes
stencils or cookie cutters (optional)
letter stamps (optional)
Take a paper and draw the shapes.
Use various cookie cutters or stencils to create a design for creating your card.
Now paint it using glow in the dark paint. (You can leave the inside of your shape open, or you can fill it in with more paint.)
When you are finished, take your design into a dark room, and watch it glow. The glow fades after a little while. To make the glow last longer, add an extra layer of paint. The longer you charge the paint in the sunlight (or overhead light), the longer the glow will last as well.
