My original plan for this game was to play it after Halloween. I will put all my girls candy in the different baskets and then they can play the game to win their candy to eat for the day. This way they can have fun playing the game and maybe we wont have a fight over them not being able to eat all the candy in one shot.
However after thinking about it for a while I thought this would also be a great game for a Halloween class party or just a Halloween party. My girls both had so much fun playing this over the weekend (we had to try out the game) that I thought the whole class would have fun playing this. And if you did not want to give the kids all a bunch of candy you could fill the baskets with toys for the kids to win.
We got all the supplies for this game at the dollar store. They had a few different types of Halloween baskets to choose from if you don’t like the ones we used. And I also found the “balls” we used, they aren’t really balls they were little Halloween cups with big plastic straws in them. I just pulled the straws out and now they are perfect for out game!
How to play the Game
Fill each basket with different candy or toys for the kids to win. If you want mark an area with string, or tape to be the throwing line (we did not do this since we played with a 6 yr old and a 2yr old it would not have been fair since the little one could not throw as far).
Have the kids stand in front of the baskets or on the line and toss their ball in the baskets. If they make it into a basket they can pick a prize from the basket. If they do not get it in they can shoot again, or you can have another basket with a consolation prize for them to pick from.
