Six Little Ghosts {Halloween Safety}



This has to be one of my favorite things about Halloween.
Each year the "Six Little Ghosts" would come out to play.
My mom would read the story and my siblings and I thought it was the greatest.
We LOVED putting the ghosts up on the flannel board.
My mom LOVED that it taught us good Halloween Safety Rules.
And even when we got older, we would still beg to get the ghosts out each year.

My mom made hers when she was at BYU studying Elementary Education.
She also made a *fancy* flannel board.
Well... I don't have a fancy flannel board.
Instead I used one of Devin's adorable blankets and draped it over our couch.
Ta-Dah! Instant (and cheap) flannel board.

Then to make the ghosts...
I found a cute ghost clipart I liked somewhere online.
Printed it off and cut it out.
Then traced 6 white ghosts and 1 of each color on to felt.
(For the chocolate chip ghost, I used tan and then drew on "chips")
I just drew random different face on each ghost with a sharpie.

Craft Skill Level: Super Easy
Time to Make: Around 30 minutes

And now for the story.
Seriously this is the best part!
I wanted something cute and festive.
So I retyped my mom's story and added some color and pictures.
A little side note:
I think I figured out how to upload a document to blogger.
It is saved as a picture.
So click on it and then save it to your computer.
Open it in Word and then make the picture full size.
Print. :)

We would do this for FHE every year before Halloween.
Make sure you check out the FHE Lesson Idea!
