Here are my favorite no-carve pumpkin ideas that kids can help make! Personally, I would rather do painting than have to carve into the oozing pumpkin guts! :-) Most of these are found on Instagram (no instructions) so if you have an awesome pumpkin idea tag me @crafty_morning so I can add it to this post! Also, check out some no carve storybook character pumpkins!
Pumpkin Bats made by Adas Interior Design – She used black foam sheet for the wings and poked toothpicks in to hold them.
Glow in The Dark Pumpkins– Make glow in the dark pumpkins using dimensional tulip paint! Use a fake plastic pumpkin so you can pull it out every year too! Find the video tutorial here from SoCraftastic.
