  • Scissors
  • Washi tape
  • Reusable plate
  • Black pen
  • Kids paints - black and blue


  • Ghost template
  • Kitchen foil
  • White paper or card
  • Coloured paper


  • Print your copy of the ghost template, I've used coloured paper for this to help differentiate the different paper.
  • Cut the ghost template out.
  • Take a couple of pieces of washi tape and roll these into loops. Stick these onto the back of your template and use it to stick the template down onto your white piece of paper.
  • Pour black and blue paints onto your reusable plate. Scrunch your foil up into a ball and dip this into the paint then use it to paint all around your ghost.
  • Once you have finished painting you can remove the template and washi tape from your piece of paper. If you would like to give your ghost a face then you can do this using a black pen.

I've used black and blue paints but of course you can use whatever you have to hand. Green and purple would be good for Halloween too.
I've used blue paper to print out my template as this helps to show the difference between that and the paper below but if you don't have coloured paper you can of course just use a second piece of white paper.
