Spooked Yet?

Ready for something so cheap and easy you won't believe it? Something almost any age child can do if they can draw and use scissors?
Grab a pencil, printer paper, and scissors.
Snag yourself a minion or two.
The third is a little behind on his Economics homework.
Set the scene with a little chilling inspiration. Very little. This is like an inch tall.
Now just sketch a creepy ghost on the paper, leaving a corner in tact.
Cut out your creation and prepare to dominate the world with fear!
Or with weirdness. Depends on the kid really.
Horrifying, right? You have chills, don't you?
Yes! Madness inducing!
Add some tape loops to the back...
...and your house is being haunted!

Results may vary depending on the age of the child and what you're crazy enough to let them watch on TV.
Embellish as necessary.

Basically free decorations that have your little spawns' personality stamped all over them.
How did I get them to help? Are you kidding?
I had to finally make them stop and go to bed.

Love this idea! This will be a great substitute for the mirror/window clings that I'm afraid are on their last leg...
