Tonight is our local homeschool group’s family night and the theme is “Fall Fest”! Our families are encouraged to bring a DIY carnival type game. Complicated construction or expensive materials are just not necessary for great games! Recyclables and dollar store materials combined with a little creativity is all it takes for fantastic festival fun!
I found lots online resources as I looked around for some ideas, and I’m passing the best ones on to you for your fall parties or just some seasonal play activities for you to make with your children.
Wonderful collection of activities and games! Pumpkin Golf, Can Game, Pumpkin Bowling, and Candy Corn Toss are just a few of the easy to make and easy to set up game ideas offered here http://spaceshipsandlaserbeams.com/blog/party-games/21-halloween-party-games-and-activities

This Ring Toss Game using a pumpkin and glow sticks is the perfect solution for a last minute, super simple activity. I’ve seen some interesting gourds at the grocery store that will work marvelously for this idea, too. If time allows, carving or painting would add a little extra decoration, but certainly not required!
