Pumpkin vs. Ghost Toilet Paper Bowling

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO {For short, when I get an opportunity to “work” by shopping at Target and get good deal on toilet paper which disappears by the roll around here, I jump on it!}

With Halloween just a few days away, we decided to make an easy interactive craft/game to help make this week festive.  This craft is great, because it’s easy for your kids to PLAY and MAKE with just a little supervision.

And what kid wouldn’t love the opportunity to draw faces on toilet paper?

Here’s What You Need to Make Pumpkin vs. Ghost Toilet Paper Bowling:

  • Mini Pumpkin (I also found this cute one already decorated at Target)
  • 12 pack of Cottonelle Triple Roll
  • Adhesive Tape (optional)
  • Black Sharpies or Markers
  • Flat Surface for a Bowling Lane (sidewalk, kitchen floor, hallway, etc)

1. Create ghosts faces on the toilet paper with black markers.

2. Attach clear tape to the start of the roll to keep it from unrolling if needed.

3. Stack  the 12 rolls of toilet paper into a pyramid formation.

4. Bowl the mini pumpkin down a flat surface to knock down as many rolls as possible.

5. Restack the fallen rolls, and take turns bowling frames to see who can knock over the most toilet paper rolls in the game.

*** This was also a fun way to practice our addition math facts.  “6 toilet paper rolls on the first frame plus 5 on the next, equals how many rolls of toilet paper?” And to total up our final score.

Oh and I wanted to let you know that I was able to get a FREE box of Kleenex with my 12 pack of Cottonelle Triple Roll with this coupon at Target, {Click on the link to print the coupon while supplies last} which I know we need to stock up on as the cold/flu season quickly approaches.

What about YOU – Do you have any easy Halloween craft, game, snack ideas to share week? I would love to pin them to my “I’m a Lover of Autumn” Pinterest Board, so leave them in the comment section, and I’ll add them to my board!
