Halloween Fun: Pumpkin Ideas

Every year we go to the pumpkin patch. It is tradition, and tradition states that we come home with so many pumpkins that I have no idea how we are going to carve all of them. We tend to pick the best looking pumpkins to carve, you know the ones that are rounded, no smashed in sides, and usually clean looking. The the rest of the pumpkins get put out as decorations. We even paint some of them! So this year lets get some incredible ideas for both carving and painting!

Carving:

Disney : These stencils can be easily printed and used on your pumpkin to help you carve. Simply use a toothpick to poke dots around the stencil so that you know where to carve.

Halloween Themed: Any of these fun stencils would look great on a pumpkin. You can choose from traditional jack-o-lanterns to more traditional Halloween items like skulls and tombstones.

Painted:

Harry Potter: Do you have a Harry Potter fan at home? This fun pumpkin will be sure to wow!

Emoji: These are worth a laugh and a smile!

Super Hero: These will save any boring pumpkin!!

Halloween Crafts: Fluffy Pumpkin Slime

Slime has been very popular the last few years. In our house we love to make it, we try to avoid the recipes that ask for Borax which can irritate skin, but otherwise we do enjoy a good slime recipe. Instead of Borax (or liquid Starch which still contains Borax) we choose to use either contact solution or baking soda.

We wanted a fun Halloween themed slime to keep the kids busy this month and we found this fun and simple recipe at I Heart Arts N Crafts. This recipe uses baking soda and saline solution with shaving cream to create that fun fluffy texture.

You can make it in any color you want, we love the orange as it reminds us of pumpkins and that just screams Halloween. I Heart Arts N Crafts has an incredibly easy tutorial that is simple to follow, my 7 year old actually made it alone while I worked in the kitchen on dinner. We put out some of our fun Halloween themed toys like spider rings, skulls, bats, and got some little plastic pumpkins for the kids to play with and stick in the slime. It made for a good long activity that lasted all night.
