Pumpkin Ring Toss

There is always part of me that feels slightly guilty when I am carving up a pumpkin. It feels like I am wasting food, don’t get me wrong, I love to carve them and I will probably be carving one in the up coming days. But there is still always that stab of guilt. I thought I would try this year to do an activity involving pumpkins that means you can still eat them at the end. Pumpkin ring toss seemed like an excellent idea.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

For your own pumpkin ring toss you will need:

  • Pumpkins (one with a tall stalk would be best)
  • Card stock
  • Pencil
  • Compass
  • Scissors

Using a compass on the card stock, make some rings of varying size. I made smaller ones that would go over the stalk of the bigger pumpkin, and larger ones that would completely go over the smaller ones.

Cut them out. Older children can always help here.

Then have fun trying to score points by getting the rings over the pumpkins.

BB had some difficulties throwing the ring. He hasn’t quite grasped the idea of how to throw them like a Frisbee. YC and I, on the other hand, had fun completing with each other as to who could score the most points. We were both as equally bad as each other, so I think we called it a draw.

Pumpkin ring toss is a fun activity just to have set up on the side somewhere for a few days. Then when the rings have been destroyed/lost and everyone has lost interest you can use the pumpkins to make a delicious soup or in a risotto!

This pumpkin ring toss is a fun game for all the family, that when finished with, you can still eat the pumpkin and not feel like you've wasted food.
