Bobbing for Apples

Bobbing for Apples is one of the fun outside party games and kids halloween party games.

Ask your parents and your grandparents about this one!

This is good, clean and old-fashioned fun that has been played outdoors for a lot of years!

This should be played outside during the warmer months as the kids will probably end up getting pretty wet!

The water will feel very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Before You Play

2 or more players
Ages: 5 and up
Need apples, timer, tub


An adult fills a large tub with water and puts one apple for each player in it.

The kids line up single file behind the tub.

The first player holds his hands behind his back, goes up to the tub and tries to retrieve an apple with his teeth.

No hands allowed!

If a player touches the apple he has to get in the back of the line.

When the first player gets his treat, the next player goes.

Play continues until every child has had a chance to go.

Almost Over

The winner is the player who retrieved his apple the fastest.

You can also divide the children into teams. Time how long it takes each child on the team to retrieve his apple.

The team that takes the least amount of time for each kid to get all their apples is the winner.


You can also make the child who retrieved his apple on each team the fastest another winner.

Then have the two fastest kids on each team go head to head and see who is the overall winner!

You can also play as a team blindfolded and see how long it takes each team to get their apples!

For older kids, make it more challenging by using a handkerchief or bandanna as a blindfold.
