CELEBRATE: with a free printable of ghostly emoticon images.
I should preface this post with the fact that we are in the throws of toddlerhood in our home. Our two year old daughter is testing limits and growing in so many ways. It is, quite frankly, amazing to see the world through her eyes.
We’ve learned quickly that she has a ton of spunk and knows what she does and does not want. And… oh… the emotions! They can go from sweet to boiling over in no time! So, we’ve been talking a lot about feelings lately with our little lady and trying to learn all about them.
As a result, when I looked at our kitchen clipboard wall recently, I wondered what I should use to decorate it for the fall? My mind drifted to ghosts (In part because of the ghost vases I had just made with my daughter). Since I’ve had “emotions” on the brain lately, instead of a wall of just spooky faces, I thought that our ghost wall should show a range of emotions!
So, I came up with five different prints showing cute ghosts in a variety of different emotional states. We go from scared to happy to sad… and silly to mad. They are simple black and white images that could work in anyone’s home as décor or just as an educational tool with kids.
Do you have a young one in your home that is learning all about feelings and emotions? You can hang these printables up for the Halloween holiday and teach your kids with these emotional and ghostly faces.

And if you wanted more information about my clipboard wall and how to create your own, read this clipboard wall post. (Our daughter also had a lot of fun with our typography letters that were up on the wall until recently.)
Our gal has fun looking at these ghostly emotional faces and, hopefully, learns a little more about feelings. We will see!
Oh, and some ghost statues on the table (that I got years ago at HomeGoods) and black and white place mats help to make this area of our kitchen look more fun and festive, too.
These ghost prints look cute and are semi-educational… I love when simple, attractive and instructive come together. It’s a win in my parenting and decorating book!
