6 Ingenious, Adorable Ways to Decorate Halloween Pumpkins with Kids
Ready to decorate pumpkins with your kids? Just one problem: Toddlers and knives don’t mix well. So skip the traditional carving. We’ve found six ingenious ways to decorate a Halloween pumpkin in more kid-friendly ways.
These are the smartest ideas out there for you and your little ones to try this Halloween.
1. Boo Zoo
How cute is this circus-inspired pumpkin from Project Kid? To make, cut a rectangular opening in a pumpkin, then create a “cage” using painted wood skewers. We like that the carving here is minimal; do it during naptime and then let your little one finish it off with their favorite plastic zoo animals inside. Rawr!
4. Silly Spider
Become the most sought-after house on the block with this cheeky pumpkin from Woman’s Day greeting trick-or-treaters on the porch. Carve a friendly face and drill small holes for lollipop sticks, then have your kids fill ’em with lollipops that are free for the taking. (Find these orange-striped lollipops at Amazon.)
