Pumpkin Bowling Halloween Game
I like to use recycled materials when I can so if you have two liter soda bottles on hand, this is even easier for you to do. Admittedly we don’t really drink soda around here so I did have to waste some in order to get my bottles – luckily, the store brand bottles were only $0.44 each so I didn’t spend much!
After drinking (save up your bottles) or emptying the contents of your 2 Liter soda bottles, rinse them thoroughly and fill the bottom with about 2″ of water.
In a well ventilated area spray the outside of your bottles with white spray paint and let dry completely.
Once the white paint has dried, decorate a “ghost” face on one side with black acrylic or puff paint – I would assume you may be able to use a black permanent marker as well.
I only used 6 soda bottles because this was a game made for my pre-school aged child, for the older kids you may want to use a full 10.
Get to bowling!!
