Family Fun


Gourd Games


Give seasonal décor a second life with these active games for kids and adults alike. Try one game before Thanksgiving dinner – and another after. These activities are sure to help work off some of the pumpkin pie!


Pumpkin Roll:

Set-up
Create a course with a start and finish line. Include obstacles and figure eights if you like.
Equipment
2 like-size pumpkins
2 sturdy brooms
Play

  • Place pumpkins behind the starting line and have teams line up behind a pumpkin.
  • Give the first player on each team a broom.
  • On “go!” the challengers must use the broom to move the pumpkin through the course, across the finish line and back.
  • The fastest team wins.


Turkey Trot:

Set-up
Create a course with a start and finish line.
Equipment
One small pumpkin for each pair of players
Play

  • Pairs of players link elbows, back-to-back.
  • One player holds the pumpkin, the other does not.
  • On “go!” the pairs must make their way to the finish line. The first pair to cross the line without unlinking their arms or dropping their “turkey” wins.
Variations
  • Both players must hold a pumpkin.
  • Add obstacles and figure eights to the course.
