Ghost on a stick! Halloween party game idea.

It's that time of year again. When we as teachers either have parents planning a party for our classroom. Or if you're like me on several instances. I've had to plan my own Halloween party for my class. Well if you have to plan or if a parent may need an idea. Here is one for you. It's called ghost on a stick. Real original right? Anyway..... here's how it rolls: First I give each child a tootsie pop and a tissue and some string. I know that was hard. Then they tie it off and make cute little eyes and a mouth to make it look like a ghost.  when they tie it off they need to leave the string long. so they can put the ghost on the floor and be able to pull it. 
A couple of years ago we played this game at a family party. That same year we played it in my classroom for our PTA party. I found this site HERE it has a rap, to ghost on the stick. You can also watch the video. It's a little creepy though. How to Play: You need a pan lid.  We had all the kids put their ghosts on a stick in the middle of the table. Every time the rap said ghost on a stick. The kids would have to pull their stick out of the circle before the pan lid trapped their ghost underneath. You could listen to the song if you didn't want to read the rap.   

These are my nieces and nephews playing ghost on a stick. 
This is my little guy playing. He wasn't too happy when his ghost on a stick got trapped under the pan lid.  It made me feel bad that he got so upset over it. 

You could also use dice instead of the song. You could have the kids roll a dice and if it lands on a certain number the  pan lid hits the ghosts on a stick. How do you celebrate Halloween? I would love to hear your party ideas.
