I love carving and decorating pumpkins, but I prefer the non-carve approach because it means younger children can get involved with very little help, it also means you don’t’ have to worry about them cutting themselves. Last year we painted some and then melted crayons onto another which turned out really nicely. This year we have gone for the glow in the dark pumpkin approach.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  • Pumpkins
  • Glow in the dark paint – we used fabric dimensional ones by tulip which you can easily get on amazon.co.uk

All you need to do is let your little ones loose with the paints and watch as their designs unfold.

I do have to say they turn out really well and have a spooky look about them once it is dark.

Make these cool glow in the dark no carve pumpkins using glow in the dark paint. A great Halloween activity for children who are too little to carve their own pumpkins but still want to decorate one.
