Pumpkin Patch HopNeeded: Movement Pumpkins and Music 1. Lay the movement pumpkins out on the floor. Have the same amount of pumpkins as you do kids on the floor. Laminating the pumpkins is a good idea, that way you can use them again and again.

3. Turn on the music and let the kids hop or walk between the pumpkins- what ever works better in your setting. 4. When the music stops have the kids perform the action written on their pumpkin. 5. Start the music again and play resumes.
This can easily be modified to a musical chairs like game. Have one less pumpkin then students playing. When the music stops the student who is not on the pumpkin is out.
