How to make the best DIY pumpkins for Halloween / Easy Family crafts

As much as I love crafts and DIY, i enjoy teaching kids, crafts. Did you know that the most effective techniques of teaching are (sadly) confined to kindergarten.

There have been scores of researches carried out and books written, on the importance of arts, for the balanced development and growth of a child.

Our pumpkins are easy to make and look adorable once finished. You can replace the hot glue for regular Uhu glue, however it may add a little more time in drying.

I have added just six circles around the pumpkins but you can make the center hole larger and add as many circles as you’d like.

Art and craft activities are not for perfection or competition – they are self discovery, exploration and for satisfaction. A child’s mind is a clean slate – all he needs is a little discipline, alot of imagination and a space to discover himself. A purple sky or a cardboard pumpkin are the kind of activities that help children give life to those imaginary figments.

I hope you will try these simple activities with your kids this Fall.

Below is the tutorial.

Can I request you to watch it on Youtube and subscribe to my channel as well.

Yes, that’s my ginger, Tilly guarding the pumpkins !!

Most of my posts are centered around easy craft ideas that can be done as a family activity too. Making mop head gnomes for Christmas or cardboard pumpkins, goes a long way in inculcating the ideas of recycling early on, in a child’s life. I hope, you try it with your children.

Thank you for stopping by and writing to me. I truly appreciate it.

    • Boys LOVE gluing and cutting (scissor works) – this project has both. You can poke the holes by yourself. BTW How old is the little guy ?
