It is that time of year again: the weather gets a little cooler, the leaves begin to change, and you need to start thinking about what in the world you are going to do for the fall festival. If you are looking for some additional game ideas…look no more! Here are four of my favorite fall game ideas:
Pumpkin Ring Toss
For this game you need a few good sized pumpkins with long stems and a few round objects (maybe ropes, or rings of some sort.) If you are doing your fall fest at night, glow sticks might work well. Place the pumpkins and assign different point values for each one. Then, mark a throwing line, and you are ready to play Pumpkin Ring Toss!
This is a game that will look good tying in with the fall theme and is simple to do. All you need to do is hide a few items of your choice preferably in some hay bales, but loose hay can work fine as well. You’ll want to spread the hay a bit so kids can reach down inside. Before you begin, determine the amount of items you will allow each kid to find and how many kids can be searching at once.
All you need is a few rolls of toilet paper. The object is to see how fast one person can wrap the other, like a mummy, with a whole roll of toilet paper. I would suggest making this a race between two teams of two. Maybe I like this one so much because it reminds me of OMC…nonetheless, kids are bound to love this game.

I hope these ideas are able to help you out, and that you are able to use your fall festival to allow kids to have a ton of fun and be in a Christ-centered environment.
