5 Easy Pumpkin Carving Patterns


Freehand Creativity

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
  • Ghost
  • Bats
  • Mummies
  • Gravestones
  • Spider webs
  • Bones

Once kids finish their drawn masterpieces, it's the adults' duty to finish the job and get to carving.
