You Have Been Ghosted


In preparation for Halloween this week have children help you fill up a gift bag or small paper lunch bag with Halloween treats. Add anything related to Halloween into the bags including: Halloween candy, little plastic spiders, or rubber Halloween characters. Each bag must include a paper ghost, so have the kids  cut out the paper ghost to put in each bag.

Use this fun door hanger to remind them to spread the fun by ghosting two more people in the neighborhood. To save the door hanger for printing just drag the image onto your desktop for easy access. See more at:

Attach a letter on the outside of the paper bag or gift bag that reads:

Late last night, we left you a treat.
The tradition is fun, one we hope you’ll repeat.

Take the ghost and pin it on your door,
to let others know, need ghosted no more.

Now it’s your duty to pass on this surprise, 
to two more families, we must advise.

Gather some treats and deliver them soon,
within two nights, under the light of the moon.

Include a ghost with each package you give,
along with this poem for the tradition to live.
