Ghost In The Graveyard Diorama

Summer’s here and school’s out. That means endless nights of euphoric middle school kids running around in their friends’ backyards playing Ghost In The Graveyard. Or maybe they’ll just be hanging out, scrolling through Instagram. How do I know?

So, how do you play Ghost In The Graveyard? Do you remember? I honestly can’t recall. So I built a diorama instead. And, of course, I made a video of the process, so you can follow along as I turn insulation foam into a creepy headstone with the help of a foam cutting machine and a craft knife.

I also use tea leaves and moss to create the neglected grounds surrounding this abandoned grave and its forgotten occupant. Creepy, right? Well, it’s all in fun.

In fact, I had a ton of fun talking about graveyards and childhood games with my friend Run Red Run. You can see how it all turned out in the video below. -v
