 DIY Halloween Craft Ideas

 

Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin carving is the best because it's a two for one-er! You can start this craft off with an adventure to your local pumpkin patch where your little one can pick out their favorite one. Take it home and let them carve away under adult supervision! Want a tip for carving pumpkins with toddlers? Avoid the dangers of a knife by using cookie cutters and a mallet instead. Place the finished masterpieces where your little one can see everyday, either inside or outside the house!
