If you are thinking of having a fun Halloween party and are looking for easy Halloween crafts activities and Halloween games that the whole family will love, then today I am going to share a fun game and craft idea that combines all three! This Halloween bowling game is incredibly simple for kids of all ages to make. Plus the bowling pins are made from old toilet roll inners, meaning it doesn’t cost the earth either. It is tradition in our house to have a small Halloween party for a few friends and family each year. And at these parties I like to get out some cheap and cheerful crafts for the children to make as well as play. So this idea is good for children and adults alike to all get involved in making a game that we can all play together too!

DIY Halloween Bowling Game
Sustainable Craft Challenge
With this post, I am linking up with Sum Of Their Stories Sustainable Craft Challenge. Each month, a group of bloggers come together to post more sustainable crafts. This month the theme was tradition, but why not check out some of the other blogs involved, I’ve listed them further down this post.
For The Halloween Bowling Pins You Will Need
- toilet roll inner tubes
- selection of paints – I used white, black, green, red and orange.
- googly eyes
- felt or paper
- old bandages or gauze squares.
Really, you can use whatever you have in to make up each bowling Halloween character. We made 6 bowling pins with different characters.
Mummy Bowling Pin
We painted the loo roll tube white and let this dry. Then, we used glue to secure some gauze bangaes around the tube and once again let this dry. Finally, we added some googly eyes and a smile.
Frankenstein Bowling Pin
We painted the loo roll tube green and let this dry. Then we added black markings to show the hair, scar, brows and smile. Finally, again we added google eyes.
Pumpkin Bowling Pin
We painted the tube orange and let this dry. Then we added a scary pumpkin face and faint lines to denote pumpkin sections in black paint
Vampire Bowling Pin
We painted the tube black, then once this was dry we added googly eyes, white felt teeth and finally painted red blood drips. You could also add bat wings.
Devil Bowling Pin
We painted the tube red and let this dry. We then glued on black paper horn shapes and painted a devil face with black paint.
Ghost Bowling Pin
You could also cover the tube with glue, and then cover with white fabric. Once this is dry, paint a ghostly face.
Halloween Cat Bowling Game Pin
Finally in our halloween bowling ideas for pins, you can make a cat pin by painting the tube black and leeting it dry, then adding whiskers and ear triangles made from car and using googly eyes and white paint to paint on a face.
Let The Halloween Bowling Party Commence!
You can make up your own Halloween bowling rules, but we put different values on each pin so we could score the game. Then we let each player bowl in turn, and added up the numbers on the pins that each player knocked over. We used a light ball, like a tennis ball to play. Have fun playing this bowling game Halloween style!
