Candy Corn Bowling
1. Prepare the Containers
Remove the labels on your upcycle plastic containers.
Spray the center of each container with orange spray paint.
Coat the bottom with yellow spray paint.
Let them dry completely.
2. Set Up the Bowling Lane
Use large pumpkins at the ends of the bowling lane.
Create bumpers on the sides using pool noodles and small pumpkins.
Arrange the containers as pins, just like a bowling alley.
3. Enjoy the Thanksgiving Bowling Game
Grab a kickball to use as your bowling ball.
Candy Corn Ring Toss
1. Paint Cones
For that candy corn look, spray paint the bottom of two sets of cones with yellow spray paint.
Spray the tops with white spray paint for a candy corn appearance.
If you desire crisper lines, use painter's tape.
Let the cones dry.
2. Set Up the Bowling Pins
Position the cones creatively, either spread throughout your yard or on mini hay bales for height variation.
3. Make the Rings
For this candy corn toss game, use glow sticks for the rings.
Bracelet glow sticks can be connected for larger rings.
Leave the bracelets small for a challenge.
