Everyone has to have pumpkins at Halloween right?
But, as pretty as traditional carved pumpkins are, they really can prove difficult to do for any adult, let alone a child. There is of course, lots of fun to be had in hollowing them out but the actual cutting part is one for those a bit older.
Having 3 preschoolers, we decided to decorate our pumpkins instead.
Armed with paint, pens, glitter, gems and sequins the kids had free reign on what they wanted to do with their pumpkin.
The little ones (12 and 16 months old) used paint and their fingers to cover the pumpkins and the nearly 3 year old had a whale of a time with glitter & gems.
They are not scary by any means, really rather pretty actually. Great to display and last much much longer than those which have been hollowed out.
