Provide each child with a sheet of black construction paper. Use a white crayon to draw an outline around each child's foot on the black paper. Invite children to turn the footprint outline so the heel is at the top. Next have children fill in the white outline with white paint. Let children sprinkle some white glitter onto their shapes before they dry. Finally, encourage children to add eyes and a mouth to the heel area to create their own ghosts.
