Peek-A-Boo Tissue Ghosts

3 Materials
5 Minutes

When I was a kid we used to make those cute lollipop ghosts. Anyone else make those? Well, we now make those tissue ghosts with our kidlets every Halloween. My kids and I came up with a fun way to make a Peek-a-boo Lollipop Ghost and I’m sharing the easy craft today. The tissue ghosts peek out of a paper cup and pop out to say “BOO!” Fun craft for your little ones.

Kids can pop the lollipop ghost up and down and say “BOO!”  So easy to make too.

Here's what you need:
Lollipops of your choice (choose a size to fit your paper cups)
Paper cups (size that fits your lollipops)
ribbon (can also use twist ties, elastics, or tape

Wrap 1-2 tissues around the lollipop.

Secure with ribbon (or tape, etc).  This makes a cute little ghost head and keeps the tissue on.

Have an adult poke a hole in the bottom of the paper cup.

Put the lollipop stick through the hole in the cup and you are done.  Move the stick up and down so the ghost can pop up and say “Boo!”
