Carving pumpkins is a time-honored Halloween tradition but if you have kids, cutting may be a bit difficult and even dangerous, so you need some kind of non-carving pumkpin project. You can try painting pumkpins but this may be very messy, so this project is a real saving! Go to Michaels and buy pre-painted chalkboard pumpkins or just take faux pumpkins and cover them with chalkboard paint. They’re reusable, for multiple decorating sessions, and years! Now give your kids chalkboard markers or chalk and let them go wild! If something goes wrong, they can always change the design, no knives, so no stress involved!
