Haunted House. Boo!
Freya wanted to make a haunted house. So I got some ideas from this website on how to construct ghosts and pumpkins from egg cartons and we ran with it.
We started by cutting holes for windows and a door.
Then we painted the boxes black and made them look spooky by doing a little dry brush with white.
Cut paper to fit the inside, put a few pieces on the inside of the windows and doors then decorate with your egg carton creations.
The girls made witches and pasted them to the outside of the houses. There are lots of ghosts hangin' around inside and out. And if you look into a window, you may see some eyes staring back at you or maybe the Great Pumpkin.
There is even a tombstone made from tin foil.
Jonah got into it and turned some bottle caps into pumpkins and mummies. Very clever.
