I don’t think I have ever got excited about seeing a new brand of kitchen towels before. I have to admit I squealed when I saw the new Ora Towels. They are round in shape and are displayed in a cone. The Ora Kitchen Towel stand is aesthetically pleasing and to me it looks like a space rocket. I knew the round towels would work perfectly in a play activity so I had to buy them!
When we heard about the Homemade Halloween Blog Hop hosted by P is for PreSchooler, I immediately thought of our Ora Kitchen Towels. The individual cone kitchen towels reminded me of a ghost so we created Toddler Made Glowing Ghosts.
These ghosts are incredibly easy to make. We took an Ora Towel off of its stand which remained in its cone shape. I gave Adam two large oval black stickers and one smaller sticker and demonstrated how he could place them onto the ghost to form two eyes and a mouth. He needed a little support at first to do this but it was a great activity to develop his fine motor skills.
Once the stickers were in place I got Adam to scrunch up the kitchen towel to give our ghosts a less than perfect look. We repeated the same procedure to create eight ghosts in total. Finally we placed the ghosts on top of eight flickering tea lightswhich were battery operated.
We turned off the lights and were impressed with how great our ghosts looked. Within a few moments we had our own toddler made glowing ghosts.
Our Glowing Ghosts activity could easily be adapted too. If you do not have access to Ora Kitchen Towel you could cut out a circle from white paper or tissue paper and fold it into a cone. Your child could also draw circles in black felt tip pen and colour them in instead of using stickers.
What a great way to decorate your house for Halloween! I wonder what activity we will come up with next with our Ora Kitchen Towels!
