24 Oct Read & Craft: Halloween Edition
With Halloween just around the corner, it’s a great time to read a ghostly mystery and create some halloween decorations to go along with it.
Take a trip to a haunted castle in Austria and solve Mystery of the Ballerina Ghost with Brooke and Eva.
Nine-year-old Brooke Mason has lived all her life on a ranch in the Colorado Rockies. Now she’s headed to Austria with her mom. Brooke can’t wait! They even get to stay in Schloss Mueller, an ancient Austrian castle. Even better? There’s a girl Brooke’s age to play with! Eva, the girl who lives in Schloss Mueller is thrilled to meet Brooke. Unfortunately, the castle’s ghost isn’t quite so happy.
We always like to bring all the senses to a reading expedition, so pair Mystery of the Ballerina Ghost with a ghostly craft activity.
After reading a few chapters, take a break and create your own ghost. It’s fun, it’s easy, and you probably already have all the supplies you need.
A square of white material
Marker or Sharpie
String for hanging
Wrap the material around the cotton ball.
Tie the string around the neck and tie a knot. Then tie the string at the top to form a hangar.
Use the sharpie to add eyes.
You can certainly color your material to make your ghost more unique or add on sticky jewels or foam decorations.
Last but not least . . .
Add your ghost to your halloween decorations.
Hopefully it won’t keep you awake at night!
Happy Halloween from Pack-n-Go Girls
