Here’s a Halloween variation of the ‘Pass the Parcel’ game we typically play at kid’s parties in Australia.
Scoop out a pumpkin as you would in order to make a jack-o-lantern. Carve out a face, but don’t make the holes too big otherwise, the ‘brains’ will fall out too quickly. (Alternatively, you could just draw a face on the pumpkin with a black marker pen.) Fill the pumpkin with cold, cooked spaghetti hiding wrapped candy in amongst the ‘brains’.
There should be one candy for each student playing. Play fun music as the pumpkin head is passed around. When the music stops, the student holding the head feels through its ‘brains to find some candy.
