Midnight Magic, is a quick, easy and fun little ghost craftivity, perfect for Halloween party day. This art is called crayon resist, as the wax in the crayons resist the watercolors. Using a white crayon, (press hard) trace the simple ghost pattern onto squares of white paper. Children will not see the ghost 'til they "wash" their paper with the "magical colors of midnight". To their utter delight, a ghost will appear as they are painting.
These cute dangling ghosts are a quick, easy & fun little something to do on Halloween party day, or as a nice activity to transition to after reading some Halloween-themed stories.

Older students can write on the spiral and complete the prompt: "Things that are creepy to me are . . ." or "Things that I'm a bit afraid of are . . ."
At the end of October, have your students choose their favorite fall book and do one or more of the craftivities in this packet.
