What you need: Candy corn, plastic pumpkins and string.

How to play: Divide players into groups of three four- or five-person teams. To make things fair, give each team member the same amount of candy corn, so if some people choose to eat it rather throw it, they will have a choice. Select a team member to wear the pumpkin (these should be the ones used for trick or treating with holes on top), and tie the plastic pumpkin around one team member's waist with the string. Now, establish a throw line for those with the candy and place the pumpkin-wearing teammate five, 7 or 10 feet away. Team members will toss candy corns into the pumpkin.

The rules: Once everyone is set, let the tossing begin. The kids and adults can throw candy corn all at one time or one at a time. The person wearing the pumpkin can move around to try to catch the candy corn as it is thrown. Once everyone has thrown the candy corn, take the pumpkin and count how many went in and also have the kids pick up any that pieces that landed on the floor. Switch team members and go again. Add up how many go in the pumpkin each round, and then total the amounts after everyone has had a turn.

How to win: The winning team is the one to get the most candy corn inside the pumpkin.
