10 Easy No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas for Toddlers

Halloween is coming up and if you are looking for ways to decorate be creative with pumpkins without making a mess, then here are some fun and easy spooky makeover ideas that toddlers can get involved with too.

Glitter, Shimmer, Sparkle

This is a perfect way for little hands to get involved with some sticking and gluing. Use some glitter and sequins to completely cover the pumpkin.

Don’t forget to stock up on plenty of sequins and creepy, crawly spiders too!

Pumpkin Mummy

Make a mummy pumpkin using duct tape and two big googly eyes.

Eye Can See You!

If you have plenty of googly eyes to spare then use them to cover your pumpkin

Button Pumpkin

If you have a white pumpkin, decorate it with an assortment of orange buttons or a mix of colourful buttons. Give it the finishing touch with a pretty ribbon.

Darth Vader

Do you have a Star Wars fan in the house? Why not turn your pumpkin into a dark lord with this push-in Darth Vader pumpkin kit?

Tissue Painted Pumpkins

Kids love painting and gluing so this is a perfect way to combine the two and create a masterpiece. Toddlers can have fun crumpling up the tissue paper and gluing it to the pumpkin.

Spider Web Pumpkins

Transform your pumpkin into a spider’s web using cotton twine and plastic spiders

Colourful Painted Pumpkins

Pumpkin painting can be a wonderful sensory activity for little ones. Plus they don’t decay in the same way as carved ones do so you can enjoy this activity ahead of Halloween.

Pumpkin Caterpillar

This is a fun centrepiece for your Halloween party and easy to make too. Paint 5-6 small pumpkins with poster paint. While they dry, cut out felt or bright coloured card spots and stick on the pumpkins using glue. Make the face using googly eyes and antennae with pipe cleaners.

Pumpkin Hand and Footprints

Use poster paint to add handprints to the pumpkins. Get extra creative by using handprints and black paint to make a spider or use footprints to make a ghost.

How are you going to be decorating your pumpkin this Halloween? I’d love to hear about all of your creative ideas!

  1. Ooh so many great ideas! I love the tissue painting and hand print ideas and I love the freaky look of the googly eyes! We are going to be using our pumpkin to hammer golf tees in tomorrow and to paint as well. Think I will need some more pumpkins to use some of your ideas too!
