Puzzle Piece Ghost Pin or Magnet

Sharing Saturday is open!! Please share your child-oriented crafts and activities or come to be inspired!

Today at the Pumpkin Patch we had a simple craft that I found in All New Crafts for Halloween by Kathy Ross. To make them you cut the sides of a puzzle piece and paint the piece white. Then we had the kids draw on the faces and if they wanted add glitter or color. Then they decided if they wanted to glue a pin back to them or use a piece of magnet tape. Above is the pin I made. The glitter originally said Boo, but I didn't let it dry and of course messed it up.  Below is Hazel's magnet. The original pins in the book were made with smaller puzzle pieces and had two ghosts glued together to the pin. We used the larger pieces since we already had them. The person who painted them white said it took about five coats of paint. I'm not sure what she used though.
