Step 1: Prepare Your Work Surface!

Lay down some paper towels so that it covers your work area. This way, paint won't get all over the place!

Step 2: Start Painting!

Have your kid(s) start painting the milk jug white. While they're doing this you can paint the lid, since it will be a bit hard for the kiddos. Maybe you can read them a spooky ghost story while you're painting. Make sure your child/kids wash their hands after they're done painting.

Step 3: Don't Forget the Face!

Cut out the face for your ghost, and have your kids glue it on.

Step 4: Final Touches!

Punch a hole (with a knife or scissors, not literally punch it) in the back of your ghost, then feed the lights through. when you turn them on, it will give your ghost a "ghostly glow."

Step 5: Finished!

Yay! You're now done with your little ghost! Ask any questions you have, and if you made a ghost I would love to see it! Thank you! :)
