Zip Tip: pumpkin idea

Christy and I are both participating in our kindergartner's Halloween parties today. So pardon slim posts this week!

Just in case anyone out there still needs to carve/decorate their pumpkin, here is a fast idea, that is also low on the mess and turns into a toy after trick-or-treating is over.

Buy a Halloween themed Mr. Potato Head toy (not the one specifically for pumpkin decorating because it doesn't work with the toy) or use pieces from your existing toy bin. Use a screw and hammer to puncture small holes for the pieces, then help your little person push the eyes, ears and nose into the pumpkin.

Abel had such fun doing this yesterday. It took less than 10 minutes and only required one paper towel!

Happy Halloween!!

This is such a cute idea. I've seen this a few times this year...sure wish I would have tried it (or let my daughter try it). Maybe next year!
