Ghostbusters Targets and Scavenger Hunt

We designed these printables for two Ghostbusters activities. First, place them on walls for Ghostbusters target practice with Nerf darts! We like locations at the end of a hallway. That way you can see who can hit the target from the farthest distance! Second, you can hide them around the home and yard for a fun Ghostbusters scavenger hunt! The winner is the first to find all of the targets and make it back to home base.

Of course, you’ll need Particle Throwers so we made them as printables, too!
