Halloween Pop Up Puppet Craft

It’s October and not long until Halloween!

We have already started Halloween in our house with a pumpkin already carved out, the trick or treat bucket is ready and Leila has been flying around as a witch on her broom stick!

I have been looking for cheap Halloween crafts in the shops but there wasn’t much that interested Leila so I decided to make my own Halloween craft up for her, a pop up Halloween ghost puppet and it was a big hit too so I decided to share it with you all, it’s mess free too!

You will need:

  • A printer
  • Colouring pens/pencils
  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • A wooden stick (a blunt kebab skewer would work well)


  1. Print off my free printable on a4 paper.
  2. Colour in the sheet
  3. Cut out the ghost & quarter circle
  4. Stick your ghost to your wooden stick using sticky tape.
  5. Roll the 2 straight sides of the quarter circle towards each other to make a cone and tape.
  6. Make a small hole at the bottom of your cone and push the stick through.
  7. Your pop up puppet is done, who will your ghost shout ‘boo’ to?
Looking for more activities to keep your little one on the go & entertained at home?
