Eggshell Ghost Mobile and Other Halloween Crafts

Looking for a Halloween craft that doesn’t involve a bunch of junky plastic?

Let nature be your inspiration.

This eggshell ghost mobile from The Magic Onions looks both simple and fun for kids to make, and since you’re basically making these ghosts from your breakfast trash, I think it counts as upcycling, as well!

And after Halloween, there will be little waste to dispose of; even with their marker decorations, those eggshells can still be crushed and dug into your garden beds.
