Looking to kick off Halloween with a bang, not a boo? This version of a classic carnival game also makes a festive wall decoration, and bursting the confetti-and-candy-filled balloons in this Halloween party game will make everyone explode with laughter.

Read step by step instructions after the video.

Note: Best for kids 6 and older. Pins make it easier for little kids to pop balloons, but darts will work well for slightly older players.

Step 2

Fill balloons with confetti (using a funnel) and candy. Leave a few treat-free to add to the suspense.

Step 3

Inflate the balloons (a pump makes it faster); tie off with a knot. Attach balloons to board with T pins, in a pumpkin shape.
