pumpkin-field

It’s time for pumpkin everything! Celebrate fall and Halloween with these fun-filled, family-friendly pumpkin ideas. From crafts to cupcakes, your kiddos will enjoy these easy activities.

Pumpkin Painting

Your young children can’t carve a pumpkin yet. Instead of doing the knife-work for your kids, let them create their own jack o’lanterns- with paint. Start with a pumpkin and tempera or craft paints. Pour the paints onto a paper plate or a piece of scrap cardboard. Your child can paint a spooky face onto the pumpkin, add an abstract pattern or use a paint splatter technique.

Mini Pumpkin Pies

The kiddos can create their own no-bake mini pumpkin pies for your fall harvest or Halloween party! Fill mini pie or tart shells with pumpkin flavored pudding. If you can’t find pumpkin pudding, mix fall spices/pumpkin spices with vanilla pudding. Add a drop of orange food coloring to the pudding for a seasonal look. Top the pudding with whipped cream and orange or pumpkin-shaped sprinkles.

Pumpkin Cupcakes

Use food coloring to to turn white or vanilla cake batter and icing orange. Use your favorite recipe or a boxed mix to bake these tiny cakes. After the cupcakes cool, frost them with the orange icing. Top the cupcakes with orange sugar crystals and green licorice piece stem.
