We decided to do some ghost hunting of our own in the attic. (Well, our upstairs.) We started by drawing some ghost faces on some milk jugs. Drew had a blast! He normally has a ten minute attention span for crafts, but he must have sensed my elevated blood pressure from his having possession of the black permanent marker and decided that this was the craft for him! He was actually digging through the recycling looking for more milk jugs.
I cut a hole in the back of each jug and we put in a battery operated tea light. Then I hid the ghosts upstairs. Of course, they were easy to find because they were lit up and we also kept some lights on. It was just scary enough to be fun for my preschooler. We wanted to include our own pet in the ghost hunting, since the little witch in the book had hers, but our dog is twelve years old and tired and not much interested in our shenanigans so we let him be.
