Creating the Mummy Bowling Pins

To create the mummy bowling pins, all you need is some store-bought plastic bottles, toilet paper, and googly eyes. Wrap the bottles with toilet paper to resemble mummies, securing the paper with tape or rubber bands. Then, attach googly eyes to give them a spooky touch. These mummy pins will add an exciting element to your Halloween party or family game night.

Setting Up the Game

Here's what you'll need to set up the game:

  • 10 empty plastic bottles (to be used as pins)
  • A small to medium-sized ball (consider using a pumpkin-shaped ball for a Halloween twist)
  • White crepe paper or toilet paper
  • Tape or rubber bands
  • Markers or stickers to decorate the 'mummies'
  • A long space like a hallway or driveway to create your bowling lane

Step-by-Step Guide

Follow these simple steps to set up and play the Mummy Bowling game:

1. Create the Mummy Pins

Wrap each plastic bottle with white crepe paper or toilet paper to transform them into mummies. Use tape or rubber bands to secure the paper. Get creative and draw eyes and mouths on your mummies or use stickers to decorate them.

2. Prepare the Bowling Lane

Clear a flat space in your hallway or backyard, and set up the mummy pins in a typical ten-pin formation at the end. Make sure there is enough room for the ball to roll smoothly towards the pins.

3. Mark the Starting Line

Use tape or chalk to mark the starting line for the bowlers. Adjust the distance between the starting line and the pins based on the age and skill level of the players. Bring the line closer for children to make it easier, or increase the distance for adults seeking a challenge.

How to Play

Now that everything is set up, it's time to start playing!

  • Each player gets two tries per turn to knock down as many mummy pins as possible.
  • Keep score by assigning one point for each mummy knocked down.
  • After each player's turn, reset the mummies for the next person.

For children, use a larger ball and position the starting line closer to the pins to make it more accessible and enjoyable. Adults can increase the distance and opt for a smaller ball to add an extra level of difficulty.

Scoring and Variations

To add excitement to the game, try these variations:

  • Use glow-in-the-dark tape or paper to wrap the pins and play in the dark with glow sticks as boundaries for a spookier ambiance.
  • Introduce Halloween-themed challenges or dares when someone gets a strike or spare in the adult version of the game.

Keep track of each player's score throughout the game, and at the end, the player with the highest score wins!


Mummy Bowling is a versatile and entertaining activity that can be enjoyed at any Halloween gathering. It's easy to set up and guarantees a good time for both kids and adults. So, gather your friends and family, line up your mummy pins, and let the laughter roll!
