If you want something fun to do that will involve your entire group, this game is perfect for you.
Split your group into teams. Have each team designate one person to be the pumpkin. The other teammates smear peanut butter (or something else that is sticky) on their pumpkin’s face. Then they are given a vast assortment of candies/foods to decorate their pumpkin with (candy corn, small marshmallows, licorice, rice, Twizzlers, etc).
Give each team 10 minutes to decorate their pumpkin. At the end of the allotted time, have a panel of adult leaders judge to see which is best. Give prizes to the team that wins. Make sure to be extra generous to the team “pumpkin.”
