Spooky Season is upon us and if you’re like me, you’re looking for the next best thing to entertain your little one since trick-or-treating may or may not be canceled. Today, I’m sharing this fun toddler-friendly craft that is MESS-FREE! Yep, you heard that right. See for yourself below!


  • Foam Ghosts (Walmart)
  • Paint
  • Ziploc Bags
  • Sharpie

Step 1

Pour a few drops of paint onto your foam ghosts and then place into your Ziploc bag. Be sure to seal tightly!

Step 2

Then, let your little one squish, poke, and move the paint around in the bag to create a cool “tie-dye” effect.

Step 3

For added fun, add in everyday objects like a spoon or car to extend play time.

Step 4

Once your little one is done creating their masterpiece, remove from bag and lay out to dry.

Step 5

Once dry, add a face to your ghosts with a black sharpie.

Step 6

If desired, string on some yarn to create a fun banner of your little one’s creations!
