Why constrain kids to predesigned carving patterns when you can let their imaginations run wild on their pumpkin canvases? It's as easy as giving them a magic marker or crayon and letting them design their own jack-o'-lanterns.
Other ideas for Halloween pumpkin designs, aside from jack-o'-lanterns, include:
- Frankenstein pumpkin head
- Haunted house
- Witch's hat
- Black cat
- Spider webs
Once kids finish their drawn masterpieces, it's the adults' duty to finish the job and get to carving.
