Paint them! For those of you with younger children, this may be a better alternative for pumpkin carving to avoid the use of sharp objects. Pumpkin painting is fun and also challenging, painting on a round an uneven surface. This gives your child the opportunity to use his or her creative side, exploring new ways to use their artistic abilities.
Last but not least, pumpkin carving! Pumpkin carving is fun for all ages, but don’t forget to supervise your little one while he or she is working with sharp objects. Check out these ideas from Southern Living on different ways to carve your pumpkin. My personal favorite is #4, “Masterpiece mpkin” where a very talent artist recreated Van Gogh’s Starry Night in their pumpkin!
