In a pinch to think of games for your Fall Fest? Here are a few simple fall fest games to throw in the mix, or maybe even to try on a Sunday or Wednesday night.
Guess the Weight of the Pumpkin
Ask the green thumbs in your church or community to donate a particularly large pumpkin. Weigh it, and then collect guesses. Give a prize to the closest guesser.
Don’t Touch the Pumpkin
Have players stand in a circle and hold hands around the pumpkin. Players push and pull the circle and attempt to force other players to touch the pumpkin. Players are out when they touch the pumpkin with any part of their bodies OR if they break hands with their neighbors. The game continues until there is only one winner.
Gather a tarp, a few footballs, and some duct tape. Cut holes, squares, diamonds (or pumpkin shapes!) in the tarp. Make sure the holes are different sizes to vary the difficulty level. Reinforce the edges of the shapes with duct tape on both sides to prevent fraying. Hang the tarp, create a throw line, and brush up on your aim. Award points based on difficulty.
Find a tarp, some masking tape, and 10 frisbees (5 of one color, 5 of another). Create a tick-tack-toe grid on the tarp with the tape, place it on the ground, and create a throw line. Play tick-tack-toe by tossing the frisbees onto the tarp from behind the throw line. This game requires both aim and strategy.
This is a classic. Place spots on the floor in a circle with a few prize spots, play some music, and award prizes to the “winners” when the music stops. If you want, replace traditional baked goods with gift cards or other fun prizes.
