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! :)
