8 Fun NON- carving and NON-scary Pumpkin Ideas


Are you looking for a new idea for PUMPKINS??  Be sure to click on each title so you can read more about the post activity.  :)


1. Crayon Melted Pumpkins was a huge hit with the hubby especially when he took over with the heat gun since the hair dryer was taking a bit longer then expected.  






2. Painted Pumpkins is always an easy but fun task especially for those younger toddlers.  :) Take it outside for an even easier clean up. 








3. Ripped Paper Pumpkin Craft was super easy to get ready yet fun for those little hands because they got to rip.  Ripping is also a great fine motor skill to work on.  






allow endless possibilities for fun.  My daughters favorite series is Pinkalicous so look at our Pink pumpkin.  We had a white pumpkin so the pink popped out beautifully!  :)


5. Sand shaker pumpkins was an activity we did in town at the art museum.  My daughter loved using the contact paper for this activity.  I think I need to find more activities with contact paper.  



6. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Pumpkins looked so adorable sitting on our front porch swing.









7. Pipe cleaner pumpkins work best when you use a skewer to poke the holes.  Young kids can still do this with your supervision of the skewer.  My 5 year old loved it!    





8. Yarn wrapped pumpkins was something I wanted to do so I honestly did it without the kids.  My son was napping and my daughter was at school and I felt like having some pumpkin fun.  :)  

Pumpkins are a great fall activity and it sure is nice to have many options for decorating them then just traditional carving.

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
