Clara's pumpkin birthday party may be over but I am not finished with the pumpkin-y crafts yet! Ava's Kindergarten Halloween party is coming up and I am helping plan it.
These cute little Ghost Lollipops stuffed in a pumpkin are going to be used for a game of "Pass the Pumpkin". It's played just like "Hot Potato". The kids sit in a circle and pass a small pumpkin while Halloween music plays. When the music stops the person holding the pumpkin is "out". But don't be sad...the consolation prize is a Ghost Lollipop! The winner gets a Ghost Lollipop and gets to keep the little pumpkin.
Here's what you need to make your very own:
White cotton cloth
Orange and black ribbon
Awl or Power Drill
Here's how I made the Lollipop Ghosts:
1. Using pinking shears, cut the white cloth into 6.5 x 6.5 inch squares.
2. Cut the orange and black ribbon into 14 inch strips.
3. Cover the lollipops in the white cloth and tie a bow using the orange and black ribbon.
4. Use a black marker or Sharpie to make ghost eyes.
Here's how I made the pumpkin:
1. Place strips of masking tape equidistant from each other from top to bottom around the pumpkin.
2. Use a flexible tape measure and a pencil to make dots on the masking tape.
3. Use an awl or a power drill to punch holes in the pumpkin. Be sure to punch holes at a downward angle.
4. Remove masking tape and insert lollipop sticks.
