Some Ghouls In Da House

These cute illuminating ghosts can be positioned along your walkway. They will brighten up the pavement and children will love the homemade lanterns.

Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
Black permanent marker
Craft knife
String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights

Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don't dent.
Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent's job).
Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.

Books related to our topic--
"What a cute book for a toddler's first Halloween! Ghost (in a very toddler-like way) eats his way thru the Halloween treats, not noticing that Monster wants some too. Kids are going to like the way they can keep track of the snacks Ghost eats- he's transparent, so you can see them after he eats them! Can't wait to share this one with my niece and nephew, I am sure they'll want to read it again and again (or, as my nephew says- "MMMMORE!")"~Reviewed by Liz
