(This was a fun adaptation of a tried and true activity.)

We're going on a ghost hunt
We're going to catch a spooky one! (wiggle fingers by face)
With a wiggly body. (wiggle body)
and a big round mouth. (draw circle around mouth with finger)
Look over there!
It's a river...
(Hop across the river, Sludge through the muddy field,
sneak past the haunted house, duck under the branchy forest,
and then we find a ghost in the graveyard!)

 

Book: Ghosts in the House - Kazuno Kohara

 
ghostsinthehouse

(An adorable and original story. I love everything about it.)

CAM00167

(This has a fun interactive element with the kids predicting the colors that the ghosts will turn. Very fun!)


Book: Mine! – Mathilde Stein

 
mine-mathilde-stein-hardcover-cover-art

(This book is a little bit long, but the pacing is fantastic so I left it as is. Even at the end of the program, the kids were very into it.)


Activity:  Ghost Craft

 
CAM00164

(Then we taped paper cut in strips into a plastic cup for a little ghost, and used stickers for the eyes. With yarn attached to the top, the kids had a great time 'flying' their ghost friends through the air.)
