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!


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.


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!!


Pumpkin Carving Ideas

We have decided to take the plunge this year and carve pumpkins. We usually paint since our kids have been young. but this year they have requested that we carve. I have been scouring the internet for easy and simple pumpkin carving stencils. I came across several easy ones that the kids can work on with help. We are thinking Wonder Woman and Mickey Mouse. It will probably be more than I am prepared for. But we are going to tackle it anyway.

I found hundreds of Disney stencils in my search for the perfect Mickey Mouse. So if you and your kiddos are looking for pretty much anything Disney this is the place to look.

Wonder Woman was harder to find. Everyone had silhouettes, and there is just no way my 5-year old can handle that. I finally found this idea of doing her symbol. It is still a little complicated, but with help from Mom and Dad, I am sure we can make it happen easier than a silhouette.
