Retail stores everywhere are starting to be decked in Halloween decoration. Halloween isn't really a big festival where I hail from, but here in the United States it's a different story.
Like the saying "do in Rome as Romans do", I very much want to join in the Halloween festivities here and make fun memories with my little family, be it trick or treating or playing dress-up.
For trick or treat, the first order of business would be to get a little candy bucket for my little one. What better way than to craft a unique one with my little boo?
DIY Pumpkin Bag for Toddler Trick or Treat!
How to DIY a Pumpkin Paper Bowl Bag
- Get little one to decorate 2 paper bowls with crayons or markers (Used but clean ones would be perfect)
- Use a penknife to cut out 2 triangles for eyes and 1 crescent-shaped mouth on one of the paper bowls
- If you can't get the crescent-shaped mouth to be big enough to fit candies, cut 2 slits on the top of the pumpkin face and fold down so it works like a clasp
- Staple or hot glue the 2 paper bowls together
- Use a penknife or single-hole puncher to make 2 holes on each side of the pumpkin and thread a ribbon through
Easy-as-that! Get your little boo to test putting candies into the bag!
