Practice finding sums up to 12 with this fun Halloween pumpkin game!

Spice up your Halloween festivities with this fun game to be played in pairs.

The aim of the game is to finish decorating your Halloween pumpkin before your opponent does!

How to Play

  1. Choose which player will go first. You might like to do this by flipping a coin or playing ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’.
  2. Player 1 rolls the two dice, then matches their sum to the instruction at the top of the pumpkin template. Player 1 adds the corresponding decoration to their pumpkin, e.g., if Player 1’s sum is 2, they add eyes to their pumpkin.
  3. Player 2 takes their turn, rolling the dice and adding the corresponding decoration to their pumpkin.
  4. Players continue to take turns rolling and adding decorations to their pumpkins. If a player rolls a sum they have already rolled, they lose their turn and play moves to the next player.
  5. The first player to add all of the listed decorations to their pumpkin is the winner!
