Simple And Fun No Carve Pumpkin Ideas

I have tons around my house already and I am still on the hunt for more lol. There is just something about Fall and Pumpkins! As a family that does not observe Halloween, it can be kind of difficult for the kiddos to enjoy their pumpkins as much as I do. I mean I am totally ok with just sticking them in my front hall for decoration! The kids…not so much! While they do love pumpkins, they tend to get bored with plain ones. So, this year, we decided that when they get their pumpkins, we can do some fun alternatives to jack-o- lanterns! So, if you or your family don’t observe Halloween (or you just don’t feel like carving a pumpkin), which takes a lot of time and skill, check out these super cute ideas that everyone will love!


Character pumpkins are so cute and can really be done in anyway. All you need is some paint, markers and maybe a few craft items (eyes, hair, accessories). Plus, what kiddos doesn’t love having their favorite character around! Check out these ideas that kiddos will love!
