Carve some Pumpkins:
This is a messy job, but
well worth the time spent together with friends and family carving
pumpkins! All you need is a pumpkin, a knife, and a little imagination.
Make Salted Pumpkin
"Yummmmmy" homemade salted
pumpkin seeds. Once you have carved your pumpkin, clean the seeds
thoroughly and make salted pumpkin seeds!
Make a Costume
Jessica and I made this
Hermione costume together. This is an event and time she will never
forget because we worked side by side in preparation for her costume and
her Harry Potter Party.
Make some Country
This is one of the easiest
Harvest Crafts to make: Have fun making these Country Pumpkins as a
family...Everyone can make their own, sign and date them too!
Click here for directions. Another
suggestion would be for everyone to make one pumpkin out of plain orange
fabric. Then each person gets to cut the facial features out of
black felt and glue or sew them on. Add other fun accessories to
create your own jack-o-lantern pumpkin. The pumpkins can be kept
forever and brought out each year as part of your Halloween decorations.
Each time your family sees them, it will remind them of the fun they had
Bake some Skeleton
These cupcakes are made from
your favorite boxed cake mix and favorite canned icing. All of the
fun is in making the skeletons. When I make these, everyone wants to
decorate and design their own skeletons!
