Mr. Potato head Pumpkins

ages 3-6


Supplies

Pumpkin Mr. Potato Head Pumpkin Decorating Kit

Activity Detail

If you have a younger child who's not quite ready for Halloween pumpkin carving , Mr Potato Head has a line of decorating kits, using the same principle as the classic version. The only difference is you attach eyes, ears etc. to a pumpkin rather than a plastic potato head. There are a range of kits to choose from, including a pirate, fireman, witch, vampire and princess. Littler ones may need assistance poking the various pieces into the pumpkin and of course, care should be taken to make sure nobody puts any of the pieces into their mouths.

This is a toy recommendation not really an activity. I think the toy is a little too young for 5-6 year-olds.

We have several of these kits and the kids love them! It is such a nice alternative to carving pumpkins. We have found that it is easier to insert the pieces if an adult punctures the pumpkin with a knife to get through the thick shell.

You can also use your own potato head parts to decorate your pumpkin. You may have to make some of the stems longer by taping a pointed skewer to the original potatohead piece so it is long enough to stay in the pumpkin. We also have a hammering kit with a wooden mallet and long "Lite Brite" type pegs that is fabulous for preschoolers. When you light the candle inside the pumpkin, their creation glows!

you can use regular potato head accessoriesif you poke holes first. You don't have to buy the special halloween ones, although they do have some fun monster versions.
