Mini-pumpkin Decorating

An easy and fun way to occupy young children at any Halloween gathering. Simple get at least one little pumpkin per child (best to have a few extra) and a few fun markers. Metallic ones work really well for an extra special feel. Use the pumpkins are part decor to start off with and then when ready, invite each child to take one and decorate it. If you have very young children you might want to also offer some stickers for them to use instead of markers. Encourage them to write their names on the bottom so they remember which is theirs when it is time to go home. They make a great party favor too.
