Ghosts & Goblin Halloween Game for Kids

About: Hi there! We're three sisters who enjoy crafting. In fact, we have so much fun being creative, we film craft tutorials on YouTube in hopes of inspiring other children. And because we're kids, we try to use e...

If you know anything about our YouTube Channel, it's that try to make Kids Crafts using items found around the house. We understand mom doesn't want to always run to the Craft store ;-)

I guess word is getting around. At least in our neck of the woods, because people are giving us items to upcycle or recycle into cool kids crafts. So this Halloween game for kids incorporates egg cartons & golf balls!

It's a perfect project for a classroom halloween party or neighborhood gathering.


  • Empty Egg Carton (large or small)
  • Golf balls or ping pong balls
  • Paint
  • Mod Podge (We used the Sparkle version to glitter up our ghosts)
  • White Felt or Foam for the Teeth (optional)
  • Googly Eyes (optional)


Step 1: Watch the Video!


2 PEOPLE: Let the dealer rearrange the golf balls into between each turn. Then the other person closes their eyes to select a golf ball. If the person selects a ghost you keep going. If you pick the goblin, set it back in the egg carton and allow the dealer to rearrange the ghosts and goblins. The object is to rescue as many ghosts as you can without grabbing the goblin.

3 OR MORE PEOPLE: Rescue the ghosts until you get the goblin. If you select the goblin, set it back into the egg carton and allow the dealer to rearrange the golf balls. Then it's the next persons turn. The person with the most ghosts after they are all picked wins the game.

    Mod Podge is a glue. Stronger than Elmer's. You can find small bottles for $1 in the Target Dollar Section.
