DIY Ghost Bowling Game… A Halloween Party Game

Do you have a neighborhood or school Halloween Party coming up? This fun DIY Ghost Bowling Game would be perfect for a variety of ages of children. It is a little spooky, but not too much, and makes a fabulous Halloween Party Game…

DIY Ghost Bowling Game

A few weeks ago I was at good old Wal-Mart and I was scrounging through the Summer clearance items

and I came across these guys…

I know what you are thinking…  those beautiful grinch-colored  inflatable bowling pins are to die for, right?  I thought so, too!  I had a plan in mind, though. 

Two cans of spray paint and six little ghost faces later… a 2 foot tall set of ghost bowling pins! 


Supplies Needed…

1. Inflatable Bowling Pins

2. 2 Cans of White Spray Paint { for plastic}

3. Black Sharpie

4. Plastic Bowling Ball

Step 1: Simply Spray Paint the Bowling Pins White with a couple of coats of white spray paint. Allow to dry between coats.

Step 2: Use the black sharpie to draw faces on the bowling pins, and allow to dry.

Step 3: Have Fun!!


 These are so cute and perfect for our neighborhood Halloween party next weekend!   I hope that you guys are getting excited about Halloween!  I am so excited I can hardly wait!

    I love this game, ladies! I am creating a post of last-minute Halloween party ideas for my site at One Creative Mommy. I would love to include one image of your bowling game and a link back to your site. Would that be okay? (I’m planning the post for Friday.)
