Team games: Pumpkin

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

Teams line up side by side at point A. At point B, mark out three concentric circles for each team. The outer circle is worth 25 points, the inner circle is worth 50 and the centre circle 100. Players have to bowl three pumpkins into the circle to try and score for their team.

Keep a tally of the scores. Once every player has had a turn, the team with the highest total score wins.

This game is best played on a wooden floor. It also works with potatoes, coconuts or large taped paper balls.
