Last year we made a Sensory Pumpkin, this year my little guy wanted to make some ferocious dinosaur pumpkins to guard his Halloween candy (smart thinking little guy). He is too small to carve pumpkins so we painted them and then stuck in our dinosaur patterns (you can grab for free). The cool thing about painting pumpkins and not carving is they can last all month!
My kiddos liked this kid friendly way of decorating a pumpkin without needing much help from me. Little Dragon especially is all giggles when he takes a look at his pumpkins. I can already tell this Halloween is going to be awesome!

Pin me please! 🙂
Dinosaur Pumpkin Pattern (available for download at the end of this post)
Card Stock (thick paper works best so the dinosaur doesn’t flop over or you can glue your pattern to a cereal box)
Googly eyes (optional)
1. Wash and dry the pumpkin.
2. Paint the pumpkin and set the pumpkin out to dry. I have been told that it is very important to let it dry completely to avoid peeling later, so try and be patient.
3. Print out the dinosaur pumpkin pattern on card stock, cut the dinosaurs out, glue googly eye on, use tape to attach it to the end of a toothpick, and stick in the pumpkin–so easy!
