To wrap up Inktober, this is probably the easiest ghost to draw!
It’s just a swooping line (to represent the sheet over the characte’s head), a couple of lines for feet ( shoes) and two ovals for eyes. Add a smiley mouth and you’re all done. Give it a try!
Last year, upwards of 350 children went trick-or-treating in my neighborhood. I’m new to the neighborhood so naturally, I underestimated the number of ghosts and goblins passing through and ran out of candy. Plus, I was a bit too generous with the handfuls I passed out. I simply didn’t buy enough.
This year is different. I bought extra candy. I’ll try to be just as generous with the amount I give to each kid.
Candy is expensive! For what I spent in candy, I’m sure there’s an alternative I can hand out that would be just as fun to get and maybe even a bit more educational. Google to the rescue! I found this site which has some really good ideas! Being a cartoonist, I especially liked the idea of giving out fun little activity books, paper, and pencils.:)
