Fall Theme Party Games

Apple catch Game
A really fun game - but harder then it seems at first!  Tie apples to strings and then tie the strings hanging down from a tree or clothesline.  Tie them just about 3 feet off the ground (adjust this for the age of the children).  Party guests must try and take a bite of the apple without touching the apple with their hands.
Candy Corn Relay
Players try to transfer candy corn from a large dish to their smaller dish using only chopsticks.   Set a time limit and at the end count the candy corn in the players dishes to see who is the winner. 


Capture the Turkey Game
Game is played like capture the flag, but instead of flags the birthday guests hide and try and capture a turkey.  Or substitute the turkey for a large pumpkin.

Corn Roll Game
Play this Fall game inside or outside.  Play individually or in teams depending on how many party guests you have.  Birthday guests roll ears of dried Indian corn along the floor with their nose from the starting line and then back again.  They can't use anything but their noses to push or roll the corn.  Fun!

Gobble Tag
Played like freeze tag.  The party guest who is "it" tries to tag the other guests.  When tagged the child must hold still and "gobble" until another child comes and touches them - then they are unfrozen.  When "it" gets everyone tagged and frozen they get to pick the next "it".

Harvest Relay Race
Teams try to be the first to fill up their container with seeds.  Divide players into two teams.   At one end of the playing field set up two empty clear plastic containers that are equal in size (try to find containers that have a small opening at the top).   At the other end of the playing field set up a large container filled with sunflower seeds or deer corn.   Give each team a small plastic cup or large spoon.   The players one at a time on each team must fill up their cup / spoon and then run to empty it into their container.  Then they run back and hand off to the next person on their team.  Play continues until one of the teams containers is full.  

Harvest Walk
This fun party game is played like a Cake Walk with a Autumn theme.   Write numbers from 1 - 30 on separate pieces of red, yellow and orange construction paper (cut the paper into fall shapes: pumpkins, turkeys, corn  ... or leave them as rectangles). 
Tape the numbers down and arrange them in a large circle (or oval) on the carpet or floor leaving at least 10" of space between the numbers.

On a separate sheet of paper write down the numbers (1 - 30) and cut them into squares - one number per square.  Fold the small numbers and place them in a decorated container.   Start by having the kids stand on a spot in the large circle.  Tell them that when the music starts they are to begin walking in a line around the paper circle stepping on the numbers as they go around the circle.  When the music stops they have to stop and stand on top of the number closest to them. (A variation is to let them choose to stay where they are at or run to another empty number).   Then a number is chosen from the container and the child who's number is called wins a prize.  Variations: Play this near the party's end and let the goody bags be the prizes.

After a number is called remove it from both the circle and from the container so the number won't be called again and the circle gets smaller - this makes the game move a little faster and there.

Leaf Blower
Each player gets 1 leaf and 1 plastic drinking straw.  The object of the game is to see who can move their leaf across a table or designated area the fastest by using the straw to blow air on the leaf. 

Pin the tail Game
Traditional birthday party game, but instead pin the tail feather on the turkey!

Pumpkin Bowling Game
It's just plain bowling with a fun - and messy - twist!  Boys love this birthday game!  Set up pins (anything that can be knocked over - empty 2 liter bottles work great) and about 30 plus feet away.  Then the kids roll, throw or toss the pumpkins at the pins to knock them down.  Tip: After the mess have kids pick up the seeds (and pumpkin pieces) and use them in a pumpkin seed spitting contest.  

Pumpkin Pie Game
This is played like hide and go seek (the squished sardines version).  One person counts and the other birthday guests go hide.  The twist is that the hiding party guests must look for each other without getting caught by the "seeker".  When two hiders find each other they must then hide together.  Play continues until all the hiders are hiding together.  If they can all hide together without getting caught then the seeker is "it" again.

Pumpkin Roll Game
Fun birthday party game for kids of all ages!  Set up an obstacle course (this game is best played outside) that the birthday guests will have to maneuver a pumpkin around by rolling it.  Set up obstacles that the kids will have to go over, around, through and under. Gather up several intact pumpkins  - you may need a few extra in case of "breakage".

Fall Theme Party Activities

Indian Bead Shirts
Make fun Indian bead shirts for a party activity.  Buy inexpensive t- shirts - big or small (girls can wear larger t-shirts as dresses).  Cut the sleeves and bottom of the shirt into fringe about 2 - 3 inches long.  String large plastic multi colored beads on each piece of fringe - then knot the shirt at the end so the beads don't fall off.   Fun and festive! 

Indian Corn Kernal Guess
Fill a glass container with Indian corn kernels and guests have to guess the number of kernels in the jar.  Closest guess to the actual number gets a prize, or gets the first piece of birthday cake! 

Pumpkin Decorating
Instead of carving pumpkins - have a decorating contest and decorate them with yarn for hair and draw on features with colorful permanent markers.  Add hats, sunglasses and earrings!
