The Ghost Who Ate Chocolate Chips | Free Halloween Printable

 when i was little, my mom always told me a story about a little ghost who ate chocolate chips. it is the most darling story about little ghosts who were supposed to eat only white foods, but ate things they shouldn’t. i remember how much i loved that story and started telling it to my kids when my oldest was just a baby.

this year, i thought it would be fun to make some little ghost puppets for baby to play with while i tell the kiddies the story. and as a Halloween treat for my fabu-boo-lous readers, i thought i’d share them with you too!  below you will find some illustrations to the story of the Little Ghost Who Ate Chocolate Chips. you can glue them to popsicle sticks or just use them as a flannel board story.  the best thing about this story, is that it teaches obedience. you can also have fun by eating chocolate chip ice cream afterwards. (UPDATE: you will have to google to find the story, because unfortunately, although i have video of my mother reading me this story to me on an old vhs tape in 1986, i can no longer share it on this page. it has since then been copywrited but another author claiming it as there own.)

  2. […] Mommy Ghost called the ghost doctor and this is what he told her to do. Keep all the little ghosts in bed for five days and give them nothing but vanilla ice cream and milk to eat. If you do this, they should be ready and all white again for Halloween. So that is what she did and by Halloween night, the five little ghosts were all white again to go out haunting and spooking and shouting “BOO!” And they never again ate something they shouldn’t. The End!     From […]
