Pumpkin GolfHere is a great game for a school Halloween party! Kids are sure to love this version of miniature golf.



  • large foam pumpkin
  • paper (for templates)
  • pumpkin carving tools
  • push pin
  • pink felt
  • tape
  • pins
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • plastic or foam golf balls
  • putting golf club


  1. Create a template on a piece of paper. Tape it to the pumpkin and use a push pin to mark the outline of the face. Then remove the template. Note: I recommend making a mouth that goes to the bottom of the pumpkin and is somewhat flat along the bottom. (see photo in step 2)

  5. Create a tongue template, that fits inside the mouth and lays fairly flat. I chose to also add a rounded part at the other end to cover the inside, bottom part of the pumpkin.

  9. Stitch down the center and around the entire outside of the tongue. Tip:To make stitching the center of the tongue easier, I measured to the center of the tongue, then taped a piece of paper to my sewing machine the same distance from the needle. Then line up the edge of the tongue with the paper and sew up the center of the tongue.
