Pass the Pumpkin

Pass the Pumpkin is a Halloween version of a very old children's game. To play this game you should have at least four children, the game becomes more fun with the more children participating, and a small pumpkin like a Jack-be-little or a munchkin.

Select one child to be "it". The other children form a circle around him or her with their hands behind their backs. The "it" child closes his or her eyes and the children in the circle begin passing the pumpkin behind their backs.

When the "it" child opens his or her eyes the passing of the pumpkin immediately stops. The "it" child must guess who is holding the pumpkin. If he or she is correct the two children switch places and the new child becomes "it". If he or she is wrong they must close their eyes and the game starts over.
