This year we're keeping it kid friendly around here for Halloween (no spooky decorations). So instead of the traditional carved pumpkin, we're making Mr. & Mrs. Pumpkin Heads. What's great about this project is one, you don't have to hollow out the pumpkin. Two, your kids get to make the pumpkin instead of just watching. And three, it's fun for kids. My daughter played with her pumpkin for a good 45 minutes.
Mr. Potato Head Pieces - if you don't have any, check your local thrift store or borrow some from a friend
With the screwdriver, puncture holes for the eyes, nose, mouth, ears, arms, hat, and feet. Make sure the potato head pieces fit well. Place pieces in the holes just like a Mr. Potato Head. Done
