Ghost Screamers Toss Game {Cottonelle}

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CottonelleTarget http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

 

We had a Halloween party this weekend and it was totally spooked out.  Black Widow Martinis, Frankenstein Raviolis, Graveyard Cookie Cupcakes…. did you catch my post earlier for the Graveyard Cookie Cupcakes?  These were such a big hit and I was told they were my best cookie anything – ever.  Ever!

Once we all had a huge food baby, we moved onto the main event – games.  For the kids, we had Ghost Screamers Toss games set up, featuring Cottonelle Triple Roll toilet paper purchased at Target.

These triple rolls are so super soft and very ghosty!

Out front we had a Ghost Screamers Ring Toss game set up. To play, kids grab a ring Ghost Screamer and toss it onto the zombie hands sprouting from the grass. This is super easy to set up.  For the ring Ghost Screamer, take a pool diving ring and wrap it with Cottonelle toilet paper, leaving one long loop and long end (tear the loop end).  These will make the “screamer”.

This was a HUGE crowd pleaser and the kids were playing ring toss all day long.

I wanted to have another game set up out back that had prizes, so I hollowed out two pumpkins and filled them with goodies.  You can fill them with whatever suits your kids and their ages – candies, toys, money – totally customizable!  I filled mine with candy, toys, pencils, notepads and gum.

To make the tosser, use an empty toilet paper roll from your Cottonelle Triple Roll pack.  Stuff  the insides with something weighted.  I found golf balls plugged the ends perfectly and were an ideal weight, so I put one in each end.  Wrap with toilet paper, leaving a “screamer” tail, tape it to secure and you are good to go.

Toss away, Savannah… er I mean Abbey Bominable!  (Monster High)

Each winning toss grants a prize from the pumpkin it landed in.  I set up two pumpkins, one further away from the other for added competition.  You could certainly set up several pumpkins, the prizes getting better as the distance (and difficulty) increases!

Both of these Ghost Screamers games using Cottonelle Triple Roll are super easy to set up and play – great for groups of kids (and fun adults).  Perfect last minute Halloween games!

    After seeing this post I realize that I don’t do enough fun things at Halloween time. Maybe next year I’ll step it up a little.
