Serve this troupe of ghost puppets and watch them disappear in a few quick bites.
Have your child make a pattern for the cookies by drawing a ghost shape on the cardboard and cutting it out.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8-inch thickness. Lay the pattern on the dough and use a butter knife to cut out ghost shapes (it takes two to make each pop).
Place half the cutouts 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Lay a Popsicle stick in the center of each one, top with another ghost, and then pinch together the edges of the two layers.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated 350º oven. Place the cookies on a rack to cool.
Spread on a glaze made by mixing 1 cup confectioners' sugar with 2 tablespoons milk. Before the glaze hardens, top off your specters by pressing on eyes and a mouth fashioned from snips of black string licorice.
