It's the night before Halloween and maybe, just maybe you are looking for one more way to decorate your pumpkins. Something that doesn't require paint, knives, glitter, or glue. Something you can do with your little one, as well as an older child. If you are, then I have the pumpkin decorating idea for you!
What you need:
- A pumpkin (smoother ones work best but minis work too, as you can see from my picture)
- Temporary tattoos of choice
- Paper towels or a wash cloth
Pick out the tattoo you'd like to place on the pumpkin. Depending on what you have, like a sheet of designs, you may have to cut around the one you want. Others come as individuals or with perforations that allow for easy tearing. Make sure you remove the plastic before placing it on the pumpkin. Place the picture side on the pumpkin with the paper backing facing towards you (see Picture below).
Sometimes it's the simplest decorating ideas that inspire us the most. I've been absent to the blogging world for about 2 years now but it's time for a return. I hope I can continue to bring you fun and engaging activities for your children and family. Thanks for joining me again!
