Pop-out Ghost Halloween Card

I wanted to make some cards to send to Grandmas & Grandpas and came up with a fun idea to do an accordion-folded-pop-out-ghost-card. (Say THAT 10 times fast. haha) This turned out to be such a cute homemade halloween card, and a great Halloween craft for kids! And goes along well with some of our other Ghost themed activities, like our easy to make Ghost Matching Game, and our cute and educational ABC Ghosts. 



Here's how we did it (as shown above):

  1. Cut out a wide ghost shape. Draw on eyes and smile.
  2. Fold it accordion style. Then glue one side down on the inside of the card. Put glue on the other end of the ghost and fold the card. Wait for glue to dry.
  3. Open card.....Boo!
  4. Add words/message.

The one in the picture is one that I made to test out the idea. I had the boys make their own accordion-ghosts and they turned out really cute. A fun craft for old and young alike. :) You can use any type of paper for the card. Also, check out some cute Halloween scrapbook paper!
