Thanksgiving Day Activities & Games : Roll the Pumpkin for Thanksgiving Games


Hello, I’m Matt Cail and on behalf of Expert
Village I’m going to tell you all about Thanksgiving
games and activities. The next game I’m going
to tell you about is called pumpkin roll,
the big pumpkin roll. What you are going to
need with this is some good weather, at least
not raining. Again, you are going to need
a relatively flat backyard or at least probably,
I’d say, thirty to fifty feet of flat, relatively
flat yard that we are going to be rolling
our pumpkins on. The way the game is played
is that you have your contestants have a starting
and a finishing line that they have. Each
of them have a pumpkin and the pumpkin’s in
front of them and they are ready to go. There
are two ways to roll the pumpkin. For older
players basically you have a couple of sticks,
pine cones, whatever you want to kind of guide
and then roll the pumpkin along. So, that’s
what you are going to be doing on that. So
make longer sticks if you don’t want to be
bending over, it really kind of depends on
the person. If you have a small child that
might be a little challenging for them so
just let them use their hands and push it
and roll it around. Basically you are going
to roll this from the starting to the finish
line and whoever can get their pumpkin there
the fastest wins.
