Are you looking for fall games? Here are some easy DIY games with supplies that came from Dollar Tree and you can adjust them for any season.
I love the fall season, it is the absolute best time of year. I am always looking for different ways to enjoy the cooler temperatures. These fall themed games are perfect for harvest parties and will be enjoyed by all your party guests, even the younger kids.
I’m part of a fantastic blog hop. You’ll get to see some fantastic DIYs following this tutorial.

Fall Bowling Game
For this project, you’re going to need 10 recycled plastic containers that will serve as the pins for my outdoor fall bowling alley.
1. Cut the labels off of the containers and clean out.
The first thing I’m going to do is cut the labels off of the containers. These happen to be really easy to remove and there’s no residue.
2. Paint the Containers
Now that all the containers have the labels removed we’re ready to paint them. I’m going to start with some orange paint and go around the middle of each one of these containers. I will give it a nice orange coat and I’m not worried about it being perfect. You can use painter’s tape and be more clear with your design if you prefer.
Next, I’m going to go use yellow spray paint and paint the bottom of the containers. Again it doesn’t need to be perfect, I’m going for a kind of candy corn look. I will paint all these and let them dry completely before moving on to the next step.
3. Set up the bowling lane
Next, I took small pumpkins and pool noodles to make the straight lines of the bumpers for my bowling alley. I placed bigger pumpkins along the back but you could use a hay bale if you’d rather.
4. Set up the bowling pins
I’m going to take these painted bottles and line them up like bowling pins and what I have here is an easy game of bowling that you can play all fall long. This is a great game for Thanksgiving as well.
You can use a kickball or tennis ball of your choice as the bowling ball or you can use mini pumpkins.
For this next project, I am making a fall ring toss. This is another fun game you can create to enjoy the crisp fall
I picked up two sets of cones from the dollar store.
1. Paint the cones
I will use Rust-Oleum spray paint and I will paint the bottom of each of the cones yellow. I’m not looking for perfection just a little bit at the bottom. if you want a more perfect look I would suggest using painter’s tape.
Now I’m going to move to the next step. I’m going to use some white Rust-Oleum spray paint and hit the top lightly. Again not looking for perfection, but I want to create a candy corn look. Once I’m done with this I’m gonna let everything dry completely.
2. Set up your ring toss cones however you like
I’ve set the cones up in this format for the ring toss. You can create levels using haybales, keep them next to each other in a straight line, or spread them out like a frisbee golf course.
3. Make your rings for the toss out of glow sticks
I bought some glow stick bracelets from the dollar store and I’m putting them together to form a loop. They are pretty small because these are bracelets so the ring toss will be more challenging. If you want to make the game a little easier you can use necklaces, but they come with fewer in each package. If you want to use the bracelets you can combine two to form bigger rings.
Now the game is ready to be played. You can divide players into teams and have a fun prize for the winning team, perhaps a bunch of apples or a pumpkin pie!!
These are just a few ideas of games that you can create to get your kids off their phones and engage with you this holiday season.
Other things you could put out or do for some other fall games include:
- Build an obstacle course
- Have a starting line and finish line for a fun relay race
- Place hula hoops out. These can be played with as is, or create hopscotch with them, or play cooperative challenges with arms connect that you have to pass the hula hoop all of the way around a circle.
- Fill a baby pool or large container with leaves and place prizes for younger children to find inside.
I hope this inspires you to create some yard games of your own this holiday season. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in my next video and don’t forget to like, share and subscribe.
