bullet point A Thick Permanent Marker - Black Color
bullet point 24 Bright Mini Lights or Flashlights (see below)

bullet point Stand-behind lines or (colorful cones, sidewalk chalk, pool noodles etc.)
bullet point Game Prizes - consolation and top prizes

Game Setup:

Before the carnival, set up your table with the Halloween themed decorations and cups.

Note: The pumpkin/ghost cups should be about 3 inches apart on the table to keep this fall game challenging!

Next, using packing tape, be sure to secure each cup on the bottom to the table - you don't want your cups tipping over during the game.

Finally, turn on the Battery Operated Tea Lights and add into only about half of the pumpkin cups.

How to Play the Pumpkin Pop Ring Toss Carnival Game:

Children are given 3 Glow in the Dark Bracelets (Ping Pong Balls) - to make it easy you can place the balls into a ghost cup to hand each carnival player!

The object of the game is to toss a ball into a LIGHTED PUMPKIN CUP. If the game players don't make one of their three balls into a lighted pumpkin, they receive a consolation prize. But, If one of their Ping Pong Balls lands into a Ghost Cup, they lose their turn (no more throws even if they have not tossed all their ping pong balls) but still get a consolation prize!

This is a fun Halloween game to have in a slightly darkened room or outdoors at dusk so the pumpkin cups that are lighted show up! If this game is outdoors, be sure to have some additional lights.

Additional Hints & Tips:

Note: this entire game can be a DIY homemade game!! Simply purchase orange and white cups and use a permanent marker to make the pumpkin and ghost faces on the cups. Don't forget your battery operated tea lights and table tennis balls too!
