  • I'd get some stickers for the pumpkin. They have some that are for making a face on it, or he could just get some stickers he likes if he doesn't want to make a face. Have fun!!!

  • Is paint an option? We did glow in the dark art paint last year on my sons pumpkin and added googly eyes, a pom pom nose and sunflower seed teeth. It was a big hit.

  • We always carve pumpkins at home. But, I always get some smaller pumpkins for my son to decorate by himself. I found, at Target, Mr. Potato Head pieces made for pumpkins! They have spokes on them so all you have to do is push them into the pumpkin. They are really cute! we get compliments on them every year.
