Pumpkin Decorating with Hardware for Toddlers

Kids can be actively involved in pumpkin decorating even when they are still too young to carve with sharp knives and saws.

Time: 10-20 Minutes

* Bolts, Screws, Washers or other Hardware
* Your imagination

Noses - Big Bolts, Metal Pipe Straps
Eyes - Washers, Bottle Caps
Ears - Plastic Lids, Brackets
Mouth - Screws or Nails, Circular Items
Hair - Zip Ties, Wire


  • Pre-drill holes for kids to insert hardware.
  • There is no "right" way to do this activity - use your imagination!
  • Use of power tools should always be done by an adult.
