Crazy Hair Pumpkin...Go On Give It a "Pull"!!

Linking up with Mama Kat once again for her Pretty Much World Famous Writing Workshop.

Assignment- Pumpkins.  Anything with pumpkins!

I have been a little absent here in Bloggy World and I do have a legitimate excuse reason.  I recently took on the position of Social Coordinator for the annual Halloween & Christmas parties with our Twins, Triplets and More Association in Calgary.

I LOVE parties but more than that, I LOVE TO PLAN PARTIES.  It's like a drug I can never get enough of.  Seriously, I am addicted.  And what does a party-planning-addict do when they agreed to only throw 2 parties a year in their home as per their "verbal marriage contract" stipulates because Daddy Dave is a TOTAL party pooper?  They wait TWO YEARS for the position to become available and then pounce on it like a cat on catnip. Ya,  I know.  I've got no shame.  LOL!

Anywho, the Halloween Party is planned, organized and awaiting the arrival of Saturday October 27th.  What's the theme?  I am SOOO happy you asked.  It's a GRAND Spooktacular Halloween Carnival!!

In addition to bounce houses, kiddie roller coasters, hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, swamp water punch and a sweet little Pumpkin Patch for younger kids, I have organized 9 carnival games that kids of all ages will enjoy playing.  This brings me to my "Pumpkin" post...this is one of the games called "Pumpkin Pull".  The kids pull out a strand of "hair" from the pumpkin and what color is at the end of the sucker determines what prize they will get.

Wanna Make a Crazy Hair Pumpkin Pull Game for Your Halloween Party...It's As Easy As 1, 2, 3!
#1- Drill Holes All Around Top Half of a Foam Pumpkin
#2- Stick Suckers In With Color Coded Tips (for prizes)
#3- Ta-Da!!  The Crazy Hair Pumpkin Pull Game
*for larger parties you may want 2 or 3 of these "guys"*

 Daddy Dave may be a huge party pooper opposed to having parties at his house but he was quick to help me get things prepared for the big TTMAC Halloween Carnival.  And I couldn't be more grateful as we have 205 kids attending and over 175's gonna be CRAZY FUN!!!

*In the event YOU love to plan parties as much as I do...I will be sure to post all the details of the party (including pics)!!

Go Get Your Inspiration On...
