Smelly Gourd

Play the traditional Hot Potato, but use a gourd instead to celebrate the Halloween season. Play scary music in the background and when the music stops, whoever has the gourd is out. You can also add difficulty to the game by having your kids call out a word associated with Halloween before they pass the gourd - but they have to do it fast!
