Here’s What You’ll Need to Set up and How to Play this Fun Fall Game…

You’ll Need:

  • Pumpkins – small for little ones, larger ones for big kids and teens (1 team)
  •  Brooms – I prefer the straw brooms for this game, but use whatever you have

How to Play Pumpkin Sweep:

  • You can play as teams in the form of a relay or line players up – each with a broom and a pumpkin


  • Divide players up evenly to make 2 teams
  • Decide on your playing space. Have a starting line and a finish line set up
  • Give the first players in line a broom
  • Set a pumpkin down in front of the players 
  • Yell, go!
  • Players should sweep their pumpkins all the way to the finish line and back to the next player in the line
  • The last player should just have to cross the finish line
  • The first one to do that – wins! 

Individual Race:

  • Follow the rules above, but give each player a broom and pumpkin
  • The first player to cross the finish line wins!
