Homemade Ghost Bowling Game For Halloween

"We tested out this Halloween game a couple of different ways! I am sure your kids will love making their little ghost bowling pins. What I’m sure they will enjoy even more is the fun that comes with knocking them down! This ghost game is one you can do at home, at Halloween parties, and anywhere else you want to have a ghostly good time! To make this craft you need: 3 or more containers, black construction paper, glue, orange balls or pumpkin, white spray paint (optional), a Sharpie Marker (optional, and painter’s tape to draw a bowling lane (optional). "

Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts


Materials List

  • 3 or more containers
  • Black construction paper
  • Glue
  • Orange balls or gourds
  • White spray paint (optional)
  • Sharpie marker (optional)
  • Painter's tape to draw a bowling lane (optional)


  1. Make sure your creamer is empty. If you are using one that still has something in it, make sure it’s sealed so when they are knocked over, ghost guts don’t come spilling out. Though I am sure my boys would thoroughly enjoy seeing that happen.

  2. Cut out eyes and mouth from the black construction paper and glue it on.

  3. You can use balls or pumpkins to knock out the pumpkins. If you decide to use pumpkins make sure your child is not playing “dodge the ghost” unless you don’t mind cleaning up a splattered pumpkin mess. We have used balls or fake pumpkins.
