Sucker Ghosts

You will need:

Tootsie roll pops
6" squares of white fabric, with edges cut using pinking shears
6" lengths of black and orange ribbon, one for each "ghost"
10"x12" sheet of 2" thick Styrofoam
Black spray paint
Fine line Sharpie marker
Black acrylic paint & paint brush
Paring knife, or other blade suitable to cut Styrofoam
Misc. small branch pieces (optional)

Instructions :

Of course the simple part is making the ghosts. Simply tie a square of white fabric over the Tootsie roll, securing it at the "neck" with a piece of ribbon tied in a bow.
The graveyard involves a couple steps that an adult should do - (1) the cutting and (2) the spray painting. The rest of it can easily be made by kids age 5 and up.
Cut the Styrofoam in half width-wise. Out of one half, draw off 3 tombstone shapes. Using a sharp knife or X-acto, cut out these shapes, trimming it so that it is as smooth as possible.
Using 2 toothpicks each, secure the tombstones on top of the second half of foam. Be sure to place these far enough apart to allow room for other decorations.

Carefully "spritz" the whole display with black spray paint. Take care not to spray for prolonged periods of time in any one spot, as the spray paint will melt the foam. Just use quick, short bursts of paint. Spray in this manner until you have the look you want. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Now let the kids decorate the tombstones. Remove them from the base foam. Let them use markers to write funny names, draw cracks, and decorate them however they would like. If there are areas that you would like to show more than others (such as the names vs. the cracks) go over them with black paint.
Note: You will notice that the marker will melt the foam a little - just encourage the kids not to press too hard.
When the tombstones are done, place them back on the foam base where they were. You will see that a white blank was left where the spray paint did not reach - this makes it easy to put them back in place.
Have the kids gather interesting gnarly-looking twigs from the yard and poke these in different spots around the "graveyard. Finish off the masterpiece by poking the Sucker Ghosts here and there.
