4 fun things to do with a pumpkin
So what can you do with a pumpkin? And how can you use a pumpkin as part of your Halloween event? Well, here are 4 fun things to do with a pumpkin:
- Pumpkin decorating- this one goes without saying really, but pumpkin decorating is a big hit for children and guests of all ages. You can use paint, glitter and arts and crafts supplies to get the best results, without worrying about pumpkin carving and knives. Which could be a health and safety issue.
- Pumpkin bowling- This is a fun activity children of any age will love. Use a small to medium sized pumpkin as the bowling ball, to knock down Halloween themed pins. You can even have different characters to knock down.
- Pumpkin pass- This one is like pass the parcel, only instead of unwrapping it, you get to take the top of and pull out a treat. Play this game to some cheesy monster songs and you’re guests will have a lot of fun. You can even fill the inside with slime, so that it’s a trick, as well as a treat!
- Pumpkin races- each team is given a hollowed out pumpkin. And they have to run to the other side of the room, one at a time, an put one scoop of slime into the pumpkin and run back. Then the next team member goes. Whoever fills the pumpkin first wins a prize!
