Halloween: Handprint Ghost Banner

Halloween is just around the corner and this is my favorite time of year to get crafty with my kids! My kids found my stash of Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape and couldn’t wait to make a Halloween banner with it. I let them cover a piece of card stock paper with the tape, which is a great workout for those fine motor skills. This tape is very kid friendly and easy to use, plus the glitter is just plain fun! We traced their handprints onto the paper and turned their handprints into Halloween ghosts. You can use different tape colors to make monsters or get creative and see what your kids come up with. I love my new Halloween banner and couldn’t wait to hang it up!
