 Lollipop Pull - Fall Themed

Easy Fall Festival Game
Table Decorations Add a Fall Flair to this game!


*Note: if you do NOT charge tickets - put a colored dot on EVERY LOLLIPOP (See Details Below)

Supplies for Lollipop Pull Game:

bullet point Bale of Hay
bullet point Fall Decorations (optional - can be borrowed from a volunteer)
bullet point Small Lollipops (one for each player) 
bullet point A way to mark the ends of the winning lollipop sticks (marker, ink pad or food coloring)
bullet point Table, Tablecloth - see our tablecloth below, Ticket Box and Game Sign
bullet point 1 or 2 other top carnival prizes or other top carnival prizes (see some ideas below)

Game Setup: 

Before your carnival decide how many top prizes you are going to give away, and mark the end of that exact number of lollipops with a colored marker or ink pad to designate the top winners. Remember, typically with this game, the kids choose a pop and they keep that pop no matter what. So purchase enough lollipops for each player.

Make sure the marked lollipops are evenly mixed in with the unmarked pops. And, you may wish to save out some of your top winner pops so they are not all chosen in the first hour or so of your fall festival!

First set up your table and tablecloth (optional), then add your bale of hay and finally add the suckers to the hay - sticking out as shown above. 

How to Play the Lollipop Tree Game:

Kids love this game because they get to choose their favorite flavor of candy and keep the pop they choose!

But, if the lollipop has a colored mark on the end of the stick, then the player gets to keep the lollipop they picked AND a top prize!

*Top festival prizes typically are about about 10% - 20% of all lollipops have a dot for a top prize. 

Additional Hints & Tips:

If you are planning a carnival for the first time, this is an inexpensive and easy DIY game.

Because the top prizes our counted and the top lollipops match the same number of prizes, it is helpful for first time festival planners, as you are sure to not run out of top prizes - unless of course you run out of candy all together as you had more children play this game than anticipated! 

*If you are not charging tickets to play the game, kids will continue to "pull pops" until they find a dot!! (See our video above) Our best suggestion is to put a dot on EVERY Lollipop - but use a different colored dot to distinguish the top prizes. For example, put a orange dot on 24 lollipops for kids to win a stuffed animal, put a purple dot on 48 lollipops for kids to win a finger puppet, and put a green dot on all the rest of your pops and tell the kids if they get a green dot they win the lollipop.

If this is for a winter carnival or Christmas Carnival see our brand new Holiday Christmas Lollipop Tree!

Safety Note: This booth is popular for small children - you may wish to have individual bags of animal crackers on hand. If a toddler wins, let the parents decide if the little one receives the top prize or a bag of animal crackers, toddler fruit gummies or individually packaged rice crispy treats!  Of course, they get to keep the lollipop they choose from the tree - which may be given to a parent :)
