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 sugar cookie 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 cookie pop).
Place half the cutouts on a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. 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 the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven. Place the baked cookies on a rack to cool.
Next, 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.
