I bought some mini pumpkins and they seemd to be perfect for a Halloween craft, and since my daughter loves to play with little figurines, I decided to make with here these pumpkin friends that she can play with. With Halloween being on top of her head recently, I made her day with those little pumpkins! I think that this girl of mine is constantly thinking about desserts and sweets, so no wander that Halloween is her favourite day (mine too actually ). You see, were I grew up we didn’t had Halloween, so I’m like a kid now, decorating, dressing up, and hoping for candies! But since I’m not that much in to creepy and scary Halloween decoration, my number 1 choose for crafts and decoration are pumpkins :).
I helped her draw the pumpkin smiles, but if your kid is a bit older I’m sure they can make a pumpkin friend like this with out any help of an adult. It’s really a super easy Halloween craft!
Here is what you need :
Yellow pipe cleaner
After we finished our pumpkin friends, Lili was pretending that it’s a pumpkin family, then she decided to wash them with a cloth, and then dry them in the garden.. So in the end they needed a new pumpkin face ! But she was taking care of these little pumpkin friends for like an hour!
So I think that this little Halloween craft was a success! Only 10 minutes of making a craft with mom, and then an hour of independent play with her pumpkin friends ! That’s what I like 🙂
