How to Make a No Carve Pikachu Pumpkin

Choosing a favourite character is a fun way to personalise your own pumpkins for Halloween. No carve pumpkin decorating ideas like this are more kid friendly too, with no sharp blades around, and no pumpkin guts to deal with. You can even make them with craft pumpkins too.

We made this mini Pikachu pumpkin using a small craft pumpkin, because I haven’t seen real pumpkins in the shops here yet but I didn’t want to wait to get going on our Halloween crafts – I do like to think ahead!

13 Fun Pirate Crafts for Kids (and 10 Pirate Printables too!)

Pirates are always a popular theme with kids, and for good reason. They get to be the daring hero in a quest for treasure and adventure. They can also dress up as their favorite character, fly the Jolly Roger, and even speak in pirate talk. Who wouldn’t want that?

I remember going to some great pirate themed parties as a child, and they have stood the test of time since my boys love pirates just as much. Young people have been fascinated by them for centuries! These days, people are more into pirates than ever before.
