Tips for Making Ghost Paintings with Marshmallows

*When making this fun and easy ghost craft you will need to create the marshmallow stamps. To do this you will need to push a popsicle stick into a large marshmallow. If you push it in too far it will come out the other side and create a hole. Then the stamp will not stamp correctly. Push it far enough in but not all the way through.

*When finished stamping with white paint you can create the ghost faces one of three ways:

  1. Let them dry and draw them on with a Sharpie
  2. Cut out black construction paper eyes and mouths and put them on top while the paint is still wet so they stick
  3. Add construction paper faces to the ghosts with a glue stick once the paint has dried
  4. Once the paint is dry stick or glue on googly eyes (by far the cutest way in my opinion)

*The ghosts will show up best on black construction paper but other colors work great for a variation as well.
