Small pumpkins and/or gourds, kids and sacks.
This is an easy and fun twist on the egg hunt at Easter. You can purchase large packs of small pumpkins and gourds from your local grocery store or Wal-Mart. Depending on how many kids you have, you may need several packs. Once you've bought the pumpkins, hide them around the yard and send the kids on a hunt with their trick or treat sacks. We always mark one with a gold star or some other mark and then give out prizes for the biggest, smallest, most collected, or to whoever found the golden one. It is a fun outdoor activity that gives the kids a little exercise. Use your creativity and put your own spin on it!
