What you need to play the Left Right Pumpkin Passing Game

Decide who the players will be and determine the best treats for them. Hands melt chocolate, so I would have the players pass something that will not melt!

For little kids, I might purchase a sleeve or two of ornamental mini pumpkins so each kiddo can pass a real mini pumpkin during the game. Then for older kids, I might find a little plastic pumpkin or witch’s cauldron to pass.

  • You will need to download the pdf file and make a copy of the Pumpkin Passing Game Story for the Storyteller.
  • A Storyteller who can be fun and animated as they read, emphasizing the Lefts and Rights.
  • Treats to fill the plastic pumpkins, cauldrons, or their Trick-or-Treat bags.
  • An area where players can sit comfortably in a circle and hear the storyteller.

Suggestions and Options

The narrator of the story is Luna, the moon. So, it would be fun for the room to be dark, and someone shine a flashlight on the Storyteller to illuminate them.

This activity could also be used like a Hot Potato game, or Hot Pumpkin game. One pumpkin could be passed left and right as the story proceeds. At the end of the story, the one holding the pumpkin picks their treat first.

Or this game could be played like Musical Chairs/Musical Pumpkins. The Storyteller could pick places to stop during the story and whoever is holding the pumpkin is out. The last person left choses their treat first.

Let me know in the comments the way you played this at your party!
