Pumpkins: Beyond Carving!

Megan R. 4 years ago

With little kids in the house, pumpkin carving may not seem like the safest of Halloween activities. So we’re here to offer some super fun alternatives to take you and your little ones Beyond Carving!

1. Try washable paint! Sure, the results won’t be as long lasting as regular paint. But being able to wash off little hands with ease is priceless. And washing your pumpkin and starting over again can keep kiddos entertained for much longer than the initial painting session!

2. Try festive stickers! Encourage wee ones to practice their fine motor skills by peeling off the back of stickers and pressing them onto your pumpkin. Help tiny tots by peeling the first half of the sticker back and then let them finish the job.

3. Try Mr Potato Head pieces! Give those old toy pieces a new life with your Halloween pumpkin. Encourage your little one to stick the pieces wherever they feel inspired to! Nothing says Mr Pumpkin can’t have two sets of lips. Hey, that means he’ll be able to eat double the candy!

4. Try cotton balls! Turn your pumpkin into a white furry friend. Or spread out cotton balls to create spider webs. Glue them all over to one spooktacular sphere!

5. Try collage! Some washable glue and imagination can take your Halloween crafting to the next level! Add sparkly gems, old buttons, googly eyes, pom poms, feathers, or confetti to complete your collage creation!
