It’s time to decorate pumpkins! If you have a toddler, here are simple decorations to do with your kid. No sharp cutting tools!

Use Finger Paints

A pumpkin is a canvas for your kids to draw on it. Get finger paints and encourage your children to do finger swirls and designs. You can give your child a paintbrush to remove messy things.

Stencil Pictures

If you have an older child, you can work with stenciling pumpkins. Then encourage your little children to use the stencil to practice control and focus skills.

Glue on Embellishments

There is non-toxic glue that’s totally safe and little kids can use it. Decorate the pumpkin with the glued-on objects with pom-pom balls, plastic rhinestones and pipe cleaners. You can also write simple words or the child’s name.

You can dress-up a pumpkin with artificial hair and an old hat. You can make a scarecrow and help the child with the hair.
