Material you’ll need:
- 3 round hoops
- 3 sticks of 3 different sizes
- 10 party cups (for each team)
- A ping-pong ball
- Gold Spray paint
To create the game set:
- Start by looping the hoops ends to the sticks with strong adhesive or tape. Make sure the hoops are of different heights.
- Spray paint them and the ping-pong ball gold to represent the Snitch.
- Place cups horizontally in a pyramid shape. And that’s that!
- Compete against other teams by popping the ball into their cups; through the hoops and having them drink the cup the ball landed in. Whoever makes the other team finish all their drinks first, wins!
It’s almost next to impossible to imagine Halloween without a traditional Pumpkin Jack-o’-Lantern. However, this time we’re mixing things up a bit and getting a wee bit tropical. Pineapple Jack-o-Lanterns are the perfect combination of tradition and change. The spiky haired fellas have been quite a hit on social media already, more so since they’re so easy to carve and create. Tropical and totally cool, this new age Jack-o-Lantern is right up our alley!
To make a pineapple Jack-o’-Lantern:
- Cut out the core of the pineapple
- Since the exterior is much easier to carve than a Pumpkin, a sharp knife works just fine to create it.
- Make sure you note your design through the thorns and rough exterior.
Once you’re happy with the design, carve and place a tea light insight! The happy yet spooky guy will smile all night long!
