Halloween Games- Pumpkin Balloon Pop

As you know, we are always on the look-out for great Halloween games and activities so when we happened upon this Martha Stewart Living version of a classic carnival game we had to share it.  Pumpkin Balloon Pop is a true three-fer — a party decoration, a party activity, and a party favor all in one and all for very little effort.

Here's what you need and how Pumpkin Balloon Pop works courtesy of Martha Stewart Living

Tools and Materials

How-To Build a Pumpkin Balloon Pop Board

1. Cover foam board use duct tape to tape together smaller boards) with burlap; secure in back with duct tape. Adhere it to wall with hooks.

2. Fill balloons with confetti (using a funnel) and candy. Leave a few treat-free to add to the suspense.

3. Inflate the balloons (a pump makes it faster); tie off with a knot. Attach balloons to board with T pins, in a pumpkin shape.

4. Cut a stem shape (download the template) from green paper, and secure with T pins.

5. Cut ribbon; tie onto pushpin handles to make them easier to hold on to (and find, if dropped).

NOTE: Best for kids 6 and older. Pins make it easier for little kids to pop balloons, but darts will work well for slightly older players.
