I love this time of year. I love bringing up the Halloween books and hanging out with Parker as we sit and read and read and read. Today’s book extension activity is a fun book, Ghosts in the House by Kazuno Kohara, and Parker has a fun extension activity to share too!
Notice the colors on the cover…..orange, black, white. These are the only colors you’ll find throughout the book, giving it a distinctive feel and look.
And of course, we have…..the ghosts! Parker and I won’t tell you how this book ends, but we think you’ll enjoy it!
Now on to the extension activity! First you’ll need to take a piece of white cardstock and using a white crayon draw your ghosts. You might even want to add a couple Halloween sight words too!
Next up we used liquid water colors to create a Halloween orange. I added red and yellow together to get an orange as close to the orange in the book that I could. We used a inexpensive sponge roller to roll our paint on! You could also make this work using regular water colors and a wide paint brush.
Are you ready for the big reveal? Well, here it is!
Ta-da! How is that for cute? And easy. And a good activity that fits under the theme of Occupational Therapy! Score!
PS: This is NOT an original idea. It’s one I’ve seen before and re-shared here. I’m working on getting better with giving credit where credit it due. It’s just sometimes I see something, stash it back in a very tired brain and then don’t remember where I’ve seen it before. If you know who deserves credit for this idea PLEASE share. 😀
