Stick a Ghost

This is just a take on "Pin the Tail on the Donkey", and it is an easy activity to adjust to any theme. You could easily make a "Put the Maiden in the Tower", or "Hop the Frog to the Lily Pad" game.

Example 1


  1. White or Colored Paper
  2. Wax Paper
  3. Scotch Tape
  4. Safety Scissors
  5. Crayons or Felts


Example 2

1. Print up the House and Ghosts, or draw some of your own. You may want to use a photo copier or your computer to resize the images.

2. Color the house and ghosts.

3. Tape the wax paper over the house as shown.

4. Fold a piece of tape back onto istelf with the sticky side out and attach it to the back of a ghost as shown. Repeat this step for each ghost.

Your finished! Now you can stick your Ghosts in any room of the house, you can even make witches, or vampires to fill your house. (Use this to play a Halloween version of pin the tail on the donkey... Pin the Ghost in the Haunted House.)
