We recently put a fun spin on traditional smoke bombs and made sidewalk smoke bombs.
Rosie and Jewel had so much fun with those that I was inspired to make another batch of smoke bombs , this time with a Halloween twist.

These smoking ghost bombs are easy to make, and you only need a few materials. My girls had so much fun with their boo bombs that we have already made more- are you ready to see how?

How to Make Ghost Bombs

Materials
Method
  • Begin by hallowing out the desired amount of eggshells.  A full tutorial on how to do that can be found here.  I saved eggshells as I made breakfast by cracking them in this way.
  • Once you have the desired amount of emptied shells rinse them with antibacterial soap and hot water, and then allow them to dry.

  • How much starch you put into the eggs is really up to you.  We filled some half way and some all the way to create different ghostly effects when thrown.
  • Once the eggs are filled carefully seal the tops by placing tissue paper over the openings.  
  • Use a glue stick to cover one side of a tissue-paper-square, and then gently press it over the egg opening glue-side down.

A Few Tips:
  • I had Rosie and Jewel toss the smoke bombs out and not at their feet. That way they could enjoy the ghost smoke show without breathing it in. 
  • If you try this activity I recommend your children do the same, as it is not safe to inhale large amounts of powder.
  • If you don't feel like cutting tissue paper for this activity you can buy pre-cut squares.
