Here’s a fun way to decorate your pumpkin many times this Halloween Season.
We brought home some very special pumpkins from a adventure to the Pumpkin Patch and I wanted to do something different with them before it was time to carve them for Halloween. On my most recent trip to the Dollar Tree I discovered that they had this adorable washi tape and grabbed a couple roles of it.
If your children are anything like mine, tape is one of their favorite things to do when they are making projects so I thought this would be a hit on their list and it turned out to be lots of fun for both my 2 year old and 7 year old. They loved it! For the 2 year old I torn the pieces for her and placed them onto a surface that she could remove the pieces from easily. The edge of a chair, table or plastic container would work well.
She spent a very long time with the task just taking the tape and placing it all over her pumpkin, the best part is that she could take them off and re-stick them again with a new design. We’ll be keeping them on for a little bit and then will remove them to get ready for another project with our pumpkins next week. This is a perfect activity to help build fine motor skills.
The girls both worked on their project while I was getting dinner started, which I love when I can find projects that can keep them busy and happy while I get my hands free to do some of my tasks. Here’s a picture I grabbed of one of the finished pumpkin, but trust me they changed them around quite often which is half the fun of this project. Hope you enjoy it just as much with your children.
How are you going to decorate your Pumpkin this year with your Toddlers and Preschoolers?
