Ghost Footprint Craft

Ghost Footprint Craft

My kiddos and I have been hard at work making all sorts of fun Halloween crafts. I personally love making footprint crafts with my children because I can lock a small piece of my babies in time. For a recent Halloween craft, we made some adorably spooky footprint ghosts.


  • Black paper
  • White and black nontoxic paint
  • Scrap cardboard
  • Cotton balls
  • Paintbrush


  1. Pour a small amount of white paint on the scrap cardboard.
  2. Use a cotton ball to spread white paint on the bottom of your child’s foot.
  3. Press the white footprint on the black paper with the toes pointing down.
  4. Repeat to create as many ghosts as desired.
  5. Wash the paint off your child’s foot.
  6. Pour a small amount of black paint on the scrap cardboard.
  7. Use a paintbrush to paint an oval mouth and two circle eyes on each ghost.
