Ghost Biography

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Glow-in-the-dark paint
  • Paint brush

What You Do:

  1. Talk about ghosts with your child. Sure, they know what ghosts are, but have they ever thought about what sort of adventures and thrills the spooky specters must have experienced?
  2. Challenge your child to create their own imaginary ghost. Have them write the ghost's name on their paper.
  3. Help your child brainstorm sections, or chapters, for their ghost's biography. They could cover their biographical subject's birth, family life, education, profession, death (something of a requirement for a ghost's biography), and afterlife.
  4. Let them get busy writing. But be available for your child to bounce ideas back and forth.
  5. Encourage your child to include a "Where Are They Now?" type of chapter, given that ghosts, according to legend, don't really go away.
  6. Have them use the glow-in-the-dark paint to dab on ghostly illustrations around their biography.
  7. Turn off the lights and let your child's story shine. Maybe [insert ghost's name] is in the room with you right now!
