Halloween Party and Carnival Game: Candy Jar Guessing


If you are like me, you are anxiously awaiting all the great new Halloween decor to hit the market, but it seems to be slow in coming this year. In the meantime, get a jump on the harvest and Halloween party scene by gathering materials for parties and carnivals. This is a classic and favorite activity:
guess the number of pieces of candy in each jar. The winner takes it home as a prize. You can use canning jars, recycled jars or fancy ones; the cute pumpkin jar was a $1 thrift find!

Here's a coloring page for your cute little pumpkins to practice numbers with. Give each jar a number and have the children draw that many pieces of candy inside.
