Pumpkin bowling

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but I'll share anyway.

Pumpkin bowling does not actually use real pumpkins but shoeboxes dressed to look like pumpkins (orange and black construction paper wrapped around the boxes and black triangles to decorate).

Kids take turns mowing down some pumpkins and keep track of how many they have knocked down.

At the end of the time, they have to add up for a final score.

The kids LOVE this. I do this in centers so there aren't more than about 4 in this center at a time. (I teach first).
