Halloween Activity for Kids: Ghost Bowling

For this activity, you will need some kids with excess energy, some DIY ghost cups, and a ball of some sort. We actually made these ghost cups as part of another Halloween craft, as well as part of this ghost smash activity.

To make the ghost cups, you will need:

Have your kids design and draw their own ghostly expressions onto a styrofoam cup using black permanent marker. You can make as many as you'd like, as they don't take long to make at all. Five year old K and I made six altogether. He experimented with making square shaped mouths and eyes, as you can see.

We then arranged the ghost cups into a bowling pin arrangement and grabbed a ball for a quick game or two. K had a blast knocking over the ghosts from all different angles! And yes, we're bowling with a mini basketball! It's how we roll around here...

And there's just something comical and entertaining about the ghost's surprised facial expressions as they get knocked over. Don't you think?
