5 Easy Pumpkin Carving Patterns

Mr. Pumpkin Head

Shake things up in the jack-o'-lantern world by using pieces from your Mr. Potato Head set to transform your jack-o'-lantern into Mr. Pumpkin Head. While they make Mr. Potato Head pieces specifically for Halloween, most kids have a one of these classic toys on hand, with at least some pieces that haven't gone missing. Mr. Pumpkin Head won't mind only having one eye - in fact, that might be appropriate for the season!

This is a sharp object-free craft project, especially good for little ones who shouldn't be using a knife or saw to carve their pumpkin masterpiece. Getting pieces to stick into the pumpkin flesh can be a bit difficult, depending on the pumpkin's density, so strong adult fingers should be on hand.
