For a fall or a Halloween event it can be pass the pumpkin. You can use 1 (Potato – Ball, pumpkin, apple, or whatever) or you can use several especially if you have MANY people and need to move the game along quickly. Play a song and have them pass the (ITEM) until the music stops. The person with the item in their hand when the music stops is out.
You can eliminate some of the multiple items and bring them down to just one item that is passed as you eliminate enough contestants. This is a great contest to keep small children occupied and it can take up a lot of time. This is also an excellent game to play in a pool with a blow up ball and the swimmers keep the ball moving from person to person.
