Halloween Tissue Ghost Ball Craft

These cute little ghosts make a great alternative for a bean bag toss during your next Halloween party.

 
Materials:

 
  • Tissue (Kleenex)
  • small super balls
  • rubber bands
  • marker
 
Directions:

 
1. Sandwich together two tissues and place them flat on the table.
2. Place a small Super ball in the middle and scrunch up the paper into a little ghost shape. Twist and tie with a rubber band.
3. Draw on a cute little face.

 
You can get the same look using another tissue scrunched up for a ball in the head, but it doesn't throw very well. Incidentally, these little ghosts look exactly like the Japanese child craft, teru-teru bozu. This is a traditional craft Japanese children make at home and hang in the window to ward of the rain. This is not a ghost however, and is supposed to represent a kindly, bald, Buddhist priest, praying for a sunny day. Kids say if you hang them upside down, it will make the rain come.
