This is a simply craft and great for your mixed ages Around 21/2 or a little early i allow then to use a glue stick but i have two right on that age but this is great as i can lay the glue and they can add then cotton balls . Older children can cut out their own pattern working on the cutting skills and i had some already precut for younger one's . Then when they felt their ghost was done we added two black circles for eyes and a black circle for a mouth .. Here your Friendly ghost . I just pick this story as the boy in this story dresses as a ghost on Halloween..
