This Halloween craft and decoration was inspired by the fantastic book, Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.  It is quick, simple, easy, and you probably have the materials on hand!

Halloween Shadow Garland Craft for preschoolers
One of the primary artistic features of this book is the use of shadows and silhouettes to create a lightly spooky feel.

Halloween Shadow Garland Craft for preschoolers
Many of the characters appear in silhouette, and the barn is decorated with a shadowy Halloween garland that we decided to mimic!

halloween shapes drawn on black paper
Draw some simple Halloween shapes on black construction paper.  I just did ghosts and pumpkins, because I knew that Lena would be able to cut them out.  If you have older children, you could do more complicated shapes.

Halloween shadow ghosts with googly eyes
We added googly eyes to our ghosts (even though that made them technically not shadows anymore).

Threading halloween shapes on string for garland
Punch 2 small holes in the top of each shape.
