Around here we don’t dress up and “do” Halloween. It’s just what we’ve chosen for our family. But that doesn’t stop us from having a Harvest Party!!!  We haven’t had one in a couple years, but I hope to put one together this year with our kids and some friends. We’ll have to see if I can pull it off!!

This week I want to share with you some great game ideas I’ve used before and some I’ve found on, where else…Pinterest. Either way, they are simple DIY games you can make yourself!! That was redundant, wasn’t it?! Oh well. I want to stress that you can easily pull off an inexpensive, but FUN Harvest party with games, crafts and food you can make yourself! I’ll share more about the crafts next week and the food in 2 weeks. So, don’t forget to come back!

But, first I want to share with you a FREE Halloween Printable. Even though we don’t “do” Halloween, I know many of you all do. So, here you go!!

 Okay, now let’s get to some of my favorite DIY Harvest Party games!!!

It’s Written on the Wall shares some GREAT DIY games. Some of my favorites are: Pin the bow on Mr. Bones, Pop the Pumpkin, Candy Corn or Pumpkin Bean Bag Toss and the easy DIY Backyard Bowling Alley.

I like the idea Single Mummy has of writing the words Trick-or-Treat on a piece of paper and letting older kids find as many words as they can in a set time. We would probably use the words Harvest Party or Pumpkins since we don’t trick-or-treat though.

I found this fun and easy DIY game on Pinterest. You could use up some of those beat-up, old and tired pool noodles for this one!! Easy to set up and it doesn’t really matter if it breaks!

If you’re not afraid to get too messy, Diapers and Daisies has some really cute Toddler craft ideas. You just need some leaves, paint and paper!! And some semi-cooperative toddlers!

And I absolutely LOVE this idea of the Tape Ball!!! How fun is this? Adults could even join in the fun on this one! Visit her site for more detailed instructions, but basically you tape up a bunch of candy into a ball. Then, you have everyone in a circle and one person with a pair of dice. They roll until they get doubles, meanwhile the person to the right of them is frantically trying to dislodge as much candy as they can. What they dislodge is theirs to keep. OH. MY. GOODNESS. How much fun is this?! I could see this being a fun family game at all our holiday gatherings! Just cause my family’s crazy like that!

What are some of your favorite DIY Harvest Party games?

Thanks for stopping by today! Come back next week when I’ll share some of my favorite DIY Harvest Party Crafts!
