What's for Dinner? Halloween Ghost style!

As it is getting close to Halloween I thought I would share a cute activity one of my teaching buddies did with her kinders.  It was absolutely adorable and the kids loved it.  They also turned out super cute.  First, she shared the book The Ghosts Dinner by Jacques Duquennoy  .  If you haven't read this book it is a cute not scary book about some Halloween ghosts who sit down to dinner and whatever they eat for dinner is what color they turn.  You can buy the book but it is very expensive used.  I was able to snag one up off of E-bay but I paid about 10.00 dollars for it so check out your garage sales, thrift stores, or any used book store.  You don't want to miss sharing this one.  You can buy it used on Amazon but it does cost a bit more.  Or check it out at the library or buy one copy and share it with your team.  ;) 
So here is what she did.  She took some white construction paper and cut it into ghost shape.  If your lucky enough to have parent volunteers have them cut out the shapes for you.  Always a big help. 
Then on computer paper she had the phrase "My ghost ate......" and cut the strips and put on the back of the ghosts.                                                                                                                                                        

After sharing the book with the kids the kids wrote down what their ghost ate.  On the other side the kids added eyes and colored the food that the ghost ate on their ghost .  So if they ate pizza....like this little ghost did then they would draw all of the toppings that was on the pizza on their ghost. 
Adorable right?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Have a very spooky boo filled Halloween.
