DIY Halloween Bowling Game idea with FREE Printables. Great way to reuse tin cans!

I love finding ways to reuse tin cans rather than tossing them. Plus, I’m always looking for a cute Halloween game to play for Halloween parties and Fall Festivals.

I put together this free printable Halloween bowling set that makes it incredibly easy for you to make your own set of Halloween bowling cans!

DIY Halloween Bowling Game - Free Printables

For my “bowling ball Jack-o-Lantern”, I spray painted a tennis ball orange and then used a black sharpie to draw a simple pumpkin face. But you could totally use a regular tennis ball or any small ball.

The tin cans fall over very easily, if they are empty. But if you want to make them a little tougher to knock over {for older kids}, you can leave the cans full of food.

Bowling is a classic game for all ages! You just need to be able to throw/toss a ball.

  1. Download and print my Free Printable Halloween Tin Can Bowling labels. {below}

I used my PIXMA iP8720 Printer because it has the capability to print on 13″ x 19″ paper. So I was able to print these labels out using only 2 sheets of paper. Also, it prints nice and bright colors which makes the designs pop on the cans as you can see in the pictures. If your printer can’t print the 13×19 size, you can print each individual file below on 8.5″ x 11″ paper, just make sure to change the print orientation in your print settings to Landscape so that it prints without cutting off part of the design.

3. Using a hot glue gun, hot glue labels around the tin cans.

    I’ve tried to print these both ways – the individual one and the group of three and their either too small or too large. The group of three come out tiny – unless you are using really small cans? I assumed it was a typical campbells soup size can… Can you help me figure out how to print them the normal size on a normal printer – 8 1/2 x 11 pages?

      Hi Debbie, I used a standard size can. You’ll want to print off the individual labels unless you have a larger format printer. Check your printer settings and make sure your printer is printing at 100% size. If that prints too large, then try changing that to 80% or as needed. It should work at 100% size, but printers and computers do vary, so you may have to play around to find what works best for your set up.
