Make Haunted Halloween Paper!
When your child's not looking draw ghost shapes, skeletons, pumpkins, etc... on the white paper with the white crayon. Because the crayon is shiny you can kind of see what you've drawn but not very clearly and definitely not enough to ruin the fun for your little one.
Set them up to paint and give them the "haunted paper".
My little one shrieked with excitement each time she could clearly see what was hidden and then insisted on coloring in every inch of the paper. Yay, wax resist!!!!
