I don't particularly enjoy carving pumpkins. And last year, I learned that my children don't particularly enjoy it either. They like the end result, but the process is miserable. So, when I saw this project in my FamilyFun magazine, I decided we would make ghosts instead of pumpkins. My folks and I started saving milk jugs and I loved how they turned out.
Each girl designed their own ghost. (2 for the big girls.) I traced the shapes and they colored them in. The girls really enjoyed the project; no one gagged and everyone was able to complete the project on their own.
