7 Ghostly Activities for your Ghostbusters Party

A party without fun activities is no party at all, according to my children, so I used my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan to inspire fun activities for our party. The extra value of this plan’s data which includes unlimited data, with 10GB of 4G LTE, is a big deal for planning parties between searching Pinterest for ideas, searching for recipes, and shopping online for party decor. The Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan includes more than just data, it also includes unlimited talk, and text, plus a free movie on VUDU every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88! After our big day of Ghostbusters partying, I know I’ll be ready to curl up in my bed with a good chic flick using my free VUDU movie this month.Ghostbusters Party Planning

‘I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts’ Ghost FightingHost a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

This was hands down the favorite activity at our party. What kid wouldn’t want to fight floating ghosts with proton pack silly string?!?

To make floating ghosts:

Gather fishing wire, clear packing tape, double-sided tape, white balloons, black felt, and several yards of tulle (I used 7 yards for 3 ghosts).Host a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Blow up a balloon, and tape a length of fishing wire to the top of the balloon with clear packing tape.Host a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Cut out circles for eyes from black felt, and tape them to the balloon using double-sided tape.Host a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Leave the tulle fabric folded in half, as it was on the bolt of fabric. Lay the tulle out and decide on a length for your ghost, then fold the fabric in half so the length is doubled. Host a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Cut a small slit in the top middle of the fold.Host a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Place the balloon between the two long layers of tulle, and thread the fishing wire through the slit. Hang the ghosts using packing tape and the fishing wire.Host a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Next, make proton packs by using double-sided tape cover cans of silly string with caution tape.Hang the ghosts using packing tape and the fishing wire.

Line the kids up and let them battle those ghosts!

Ghostbusters Crafting StationHang the ghosts using packing tape and the fishing wire.

Place crafting supplies in a tray so children can use their imagination to create Slimer and ghost crafts. Some craft supply ideas include paper plates, streamers, foam, and construction paper in shade of green and white, plus googly eyes, glitter, glue, and double-sided tape.Hang the ghosts using packing tape and the fishing wire.

DIY Pizza Sugar Cookie DecoratingHost a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

Bake sugar cookies as pizza crusts. Tint your favorite vanilla frosting red for pizza sauce. Then use shredded coconut for cheese and small candies for pizza toppings.

Slimer SlimeHost a Kid-Friendly Ghostbusters Party

You can pre-make slime for the children to play with, or allow the kids to make their own slime at the party. Provide small mason jars, so children can take the Slimer Slime home with them.

Lollipop Ghosts
