PING PONG PUMPKIN GAME - SETUP & DIRECTIONS
(Short Carnival Savers video/gif shows halloween plastic cups bunched together on a table and someone tossing a ping pong ball into one.)
Supplies for Ping Pong Pumpkin - 2019 Updates!:
12- 24 Orange Jack-o-Lantern Plastic Cups
Before the carnival, set up your table with the Halloween themed decorations and cups.
We updated this game to add LED underwater lights to the ghost cups. Adding water to the cups helps them to stay in place and you will only need to tape down the jack o lantern cups with the battery powered tea lights which of course cannot be filled with water!
Note: The pumpkin/ghost cups should be about 1-2 inches apart on the table to keep this fall game challenging!
Add water to the ghost cups and drop in your underwater lights into about half the ghost cups for a great look!
How to Play the Ping Pong Pumpkin Carnival Game:
Children are given 3 Table Tennis Balls (Ping Pong Balls) - to make it easy you can place the balls into a ghost cup to hand each carnival player!
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, that does not have a light, they lose their turn (no more throws even if they have not tossed all their ping pong balls) but still get a consolation prize!
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 new for 2019 the underwater white LED lights for a unique and eye-catching Halloween Game!!
