Create some fun and spooky ghosts with this footprint ghost craft for kids

Ghosts are a staple of Halloween, haunting and scaring throughout the night.

We don’t want to scare away all the trick or treaters, so here are some cuter (but still spooky) ghosts.


A little paint and your bare feet and you can create all kinds of little ghosts.

It is best to use a thicker paper for these easy halloween crafts for kids to make sure the paint doesn’t bleed through.

The white ghost will stand out best of a black paper.

Let the stomping being! Fill the paper with as many ghosts as you can fit.

Just always remember to put something on the floor, because it’s very likely the foot stomping may cause a bit of a mess when you do these crafts for kids!

How to Make a Footprint Ghost

Let your imagination run while, who said ghosts had to be just white, you can use any colors you want to create rainbow ghosts too. Why not make several and join them together to make a garland!

Get Stomping!

Craft Supplies:

  • White Paint
  • Black Marker
  • Black Paper
  • Bowl or Container
  • Bare, clean, feet

Step #1:

Place your black paper on something protective, to make sure if you slip you don’t get paint all over the carpet.

Step #2:

Put your white paint into a container (big enough to fit your foot). Clean the foot you are going to use.

Step #3:

Step into the paint ensuring that all of the sole of your foot is covered with paint.

Gently place your foot onto the black paper, where you would like to have your ghost. Press down firmly to make sure your imprint is even.

Step #4:

Once the footprint is dry, use the black marker to draw your eyes and mouth.

The ghost will be an upside down foot, so you will be drawing his face on the heel of your footprint.
