12 Friendly, Not Spooky, Ghost Finds for Your Little One

Next to pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns, my favorite Halloween character has got to be a ghost. I love their simple, non-gruesome appearance, and how un-scary they actually are, thanks in part to the beloved Casper the Friendly Ghost cartoon I devotedly watched as a kid. Because of this nice factor, they are the perfect adornment for baby clothes, blankets, bibs and clips. Keep your skeletons and ghoulish monsters for the teen years; for me and my baby, a cute ghost is all we need for Halloween! Read on for a roundup of 12 sweet ghost accessories and DIY items for your littlest one. I’m sure you’ll agree that they’re the perfect thing to add just the right amount of spookiness to this year’s Halloween.
