I tried out a few fall toddler pumpkin activities last year and they turned out to be major fails.
So this year, I am opting for MESS FREE toddler pumpkin decorating ideas.
I am not kidding. Last year was a disaster. I made up edible finger paint and let my one year old twins go wild.
WHAT was I thinking. Oh, I forgot to mention I was the sole one in charge of my twins. At a friends house.
After last year, I really didn’t want to do any holiday activities but the Blogger in me said otherwise.
So here I am, testing out a few ideas once again hoping they turn out so I can share them with you as tried and true toddler pumpkin decorating ideas.
That might sound odd, but I wanted to write the intro before I dove into the actual pumpkin decorating with my twin toddlers.
I thought it would be more fun that way and hopefully, lead to some success in our pumpkin decorating.
And as it turns out, all went great!
These two ideas are ones I am super excited to share with you guys because they are no mess, easy and pretty cheap ways to decorate pumpkins with your toddlers that they’ll actually have fun with.
Toddler Pumpkin Decorating Ideas
First: Hammer Time.
I made myself laugh at that. But really. We’re breaking out the toddler tool set for this one.
You’re going to need a FAKE carve-able pumpkin. You could do real, but fake is a lot less work and mess.
Then a pack of golf tees.
Then the toddler tool set, specifically for the hammer.
From there, I pushed in a handful of the golf tees into the fake pumpkin and let my twin toddlers hammer them the rest of the way in.
I was skeptical at first if they would actually get what I was trying to have them do, but they ended up having a blast. They also liked pulling out the golf tees and sticking them back in!
Second: Sticker Party!
Please tell me. What toddler doesn’t love stickers or sticky things in general?
I just knew this one would go over well because my littles love their stickers.
So I snagged a few sticker books, some sticker back googley eyes and some sticker back gems. Then when it came to the actual activity, I helped them figure out how to take the stickers off each kind of paper and let them go crazy!
They ended up spending nearly an hour. Yes. A whole HOUR engulfed in this activity. So, needless to say I highly recommend it.
They even stickered each others faces for fun.
If you’re looking for some seasonal fun, I would love for you to try out these toddler pumpkin decorating ideas and let me know what you think!
