How we decorated our pumpkin!!

We finally decorated a pumpkin today, I know, it is super late but we did it. Rather than carving the pumpkin, while I was looking through my Halloween stash, I found this little kit.

It has the pieces that you just stick into the pumpkin. Kind of like a Mr. Potato head, I guess you could call it a Mr.Pumpkin Head, haha.

Three different sets were in this one box, and we only had one big pumpkin so We made a three faced Mr. Pumpkin head!!

                                   Yes, all of those faces are on the same pumpkin.
The kids had a blast, and so did I. I really loved not having to clean up all of that pumpkin mush!! Since my children are still young, they did not mind not actually carving it, but I am sure sometime in the near future we will have to start actually carving them.

I incorporated this activity into our homeschool. We are doing a unit study on pumpkins right now, and this was the perfect hands on activity that everyone could get involved in.
