My neighbor Jennifer makes intricate Jack-o’-Lanterns for her four kids each year. She lets them each choose a design and then she carves them out.
Of course, not everyone has the time or the skill to create jack-o-lanterns like this. So, I particularly wanted to point out Jenn’s youngest child’s design pick. He’s 3 years old and his name is Michael. Michael put his hand up to the pumpkin and asked Jenn to make an outline of his hand and said, "That’s what I want!". How cute! This is something any of us could do. Look how sweet it is…
Thanks to Jenn for sharing her jack-o’-lantern’s with us!
Note: Another cute pumpkin idea for young children I saw this year at a friend’s house. It was a small pumpkin painted in bright colors (sort of using a drip method so you could still see the orange pumpkin underneath). Then he glued on lots of sparkles. It was awesome-looking and seemed easy to do with young kids.
