Halloween and Fall Games

Published May 12, 2013 by sunhealersblog

I love everything about Fall.  This year I want to have a Harvest festival.  I have a list of games and activities to do with the kids.  Hope you guys enjoy!

Fall Festival 005

  1. Pumpkin painting:  For all the little ones and the not so little ones.  Now that you have finished picking out your pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, you can paint the pumpkins.  All you need is paint to either paint on a face instead of carving one out or you can paint on any Halloween theme like a moon or a cat.
  2. Harvest Bowl:  Draw ghost faces on the toilet paper with a black marker and use a small pumpkin to use as the ball.  Roll it to knock down the toilet paper rolls.  Try stacking some to make it more fun.
  3. Pin the nose on a jack-o-lantern or Pin the tail on the cat .
  4. Bobbing for apples.
  5. Pumpkin passing:  Similar to musical chairs.  Once the music stops the person left holding the pumpkin is out until last person who is left will be the winner.
  6. Apple-apple-pumpkin:  Similar to duck-duck-goose but instead it’s Apple-apple-pumpkin.
  7. Costume contest
  8. Harvest dash:  Fill up containers with candy corn and see who or which team can empty it the fastest.
  9. Relay Race:  Pass the corn instead of a baton.
  10. Hot Potatoe
  11. Pumpkin Pie or Sweet Potato Pie eating contest.
  12. Pumpkin Foot race:  See who can kick their pumpkin across the finish line first.
  13. Guess the Pumpkin’s weight
  14. Throw pennies in a carved out pumpkin
  15. Pumpkin seed toss:  Line up a couple containers in a row and have the children take turns throwing seeds into them in seqeunce.
  16. Pumpkin Ring Toss:  Line up the pumpkins and toss a ring to see if you can get it through the stem.
  17. Mummy Wrap:  This game calls for 2 person teams.  Using a roll of toilet paper see who can wrap their team member as a mummy the fastest.
  18. Cauldron Guess:  You can buy small cauldrons at a Dollar Store and fill them up with icky and creepy food and have the players guess what is in it. ( ex:  noodles for the brain or worms, boiled quail eggs or olives for eyeballs, peeled grapes, corn husk for hair, string cheese cut in half as fingers, spiderwebs, almond slithers as fingernails,  loose corn as teeth, fake fur, red jello mixed with small sausages as guts)
  19. Cauldron and Jack-O-Lantern toss: Line up small cauldrons and jack-o-lanterns in a row and have the players toss a small creepy rubber objects like eyeballs or animals in them.
  20. Candy Corn guess:  Fill a jar with candy corn and have the players guess how many are in the jar.
  21. Pumpkin Carving contest
  22. Witch’s Brew:  Cut out creepy shapes about the size of a silver dollar using construction paper (apples, pumpkins, eyeballs, fingers, newt, frog legs, candy corn, tongue.)  Using a straw as a vacuum, each contestant tries to pick up the shapes and place it into a bowl.  Time the players to see who can do it the fastest.
  23. See who can dress a Scarecrow the fastest
  24. Find an object in a haystack
