Pumpkin Patch Stomp


Let the kids discover a sweet surprise in your homemade, backyard pumpkin patch. These balloon “pumpkins” can be filled with treats, prizes, stickers or whatever you can squeeze inside!

You'll Need

  • Orange or white latex balloons
  • Green curling ribbon
  • Green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • HERSHEY'S KISSES Milk Chocolates
  • TWIZZLERS Twists
  • JOLLY RANCHER Original Flavors Hard Candy
  • Assorted snack size bars



Fill each balloon with 3 to 4 pieces of candy. HERSHEY'S KISSES Milk Chocolates, TWIZZLERS Twists, JOLLY RANCHER Hard Candies and JOLLY RANCHER Chews work best, but any snack size bar will do. Inflate the balloon and tie off.


Add a vine and a leaf to each pumpkin using ribbon and green construction paper. Tie the ribbons to the balloon and tape a leaf along the ribbon or to the balloon itself. Curl the ends of the ribbon using the scissors.


Place your “pumpkins” in the grass or on the carpet.


Start a countdown and release the kids to stomp the balloons and collect the candy.
