Sometimes the simplest materials can create the most wonderful toys, and here is a craft which even the very young can do but which will create a toy which has endless possibilities for further create - with storytelling and creative play topping our list of things to do with these little Ghosties once they were made!

Ghosties for hours of fun


These ghosties will be very satisfying for even young children to make, as they can do most of it themselves (except maybe turning the elastic band around) and make such a great toy.

You can even make a few of them to populate the Recycled City as we have done for a totally home made toy and game experience.

Our Recycled City is transformed into a haunted castle for hours of imaginative play



Time: 2 minutes to make for hours of creative play
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's, Over 10's, Any Age
