Scarecrow Party Ideas
Scarecrow Party Games
Scare the Crows Black Balloons
Give each player two black balloons. Have the players try to keep both balloons in the air for 1 minute. To make this even more difficult, have each player use only one hand to keep the balloons in the air.
Scarecrows 2’ or larger / 3 – 4 Hula Hoops
Set up scarecrows and assign them point values – 10, 25, 50 points making the higher point scarecrow the hardest. One at a time players try and throw a hula hoop over the scarecrows. Add up the score for each player and the one with the highest points at the end of 3 rounds wins.
Corn Kernels (unpopped popcorn) / 4 large bowls or containers / Small cups
Teams try to fill their container with corn the fastest. Divide players into teams. Each team should have a large bowl filled with corn at their starting point and a small paper or plastic cup. At the other end of the playing field set up two containers that are equal in size such as empty gallon milk containers (the small opening of the milk jugs make the relay more challenging and easier to determine who wins at the end of the game). One at a time players take their teams plastic cup, fill it with corn and then run and dump it into their container. Then they run back to the start and hands off the cup to the next team member. The first team that fills their container to the top wins!
Candy Corn Chopstick
Scarecrow Dress up relay
Gather two sets of large old clothes including overalls or jeans, flannel shirts, straw hats, boots, gloves, sunglasses, etc. and place them in two separate piles a good distance from where the teams will start. Divide party guests into 2 teams. The first person from each team runs across to the pile of their teams scarecrow clothes, puts everything on, runs back to tag their team - then back again to the pile and take off the items. They then run and tag the next team member in line and that person continues the relay until everyone takes a turn. First team to finish wins!
Candy Corn Stack
Give each player a dish containing candy corn. Set a timer to 1 minute and see how many pieces of candy corn they can stand upright before time is called.
