Grim Grinning Ghosts--The Haunted Mansion Attraction

Tristan and I worked on a little craft yesterday. I saw it on Pintrest, but modified it.

We started with a styrofoam plate (I wanted it to hold up). We added black oval construction paper eyes with white dots for contrast where the original used plain black circles. We gave him a round mouth so he says Boo! (they used an oval) I traced his hands for arms (the original just had mitteny looking hands) and let him tear of streamers for the bottom. We put it all together with glue. I poked a hole in the top, added ribbon to hang it by and viola!

I will say I did all the cutting because all I have is grown up scissors. Does anyone know the best safety scissors for a 2 year old?

Without further ado...Boo!

I think it turned out great! What do you think?
