- Cut the cardboard to the same dimensions of the poster board paper. Your child can make a mega-sized Halloween ghost or a smaller version.
- Glue the paper to the cardboard.
- Draw an outline of a flowing ghost on the paper with the chalk. Add to circles for the eyes. Leave these blank and do not color the circles in with the chalk.
- Glue the cotton balls onto the paper inside of the ghost outline. Leave spaces for the eyes.
- Wait for the glue to dry completely.
- Hang the ghost up and turn on a black light. If you can’t hang up the artwork or don’t have the wall space. Prop the picture up against a solid surface.
- Turn off any other lights, while keeping the black light on. Use the brush to paint tonic water onto the cotton balls. The tonic water-covered ghost should glow in the back light.
