Decorating pumpkins for Halloween is a timeless tradition that my family and I have done for years.
We love going to the pumpkin patch for the adorable photos (sometimes in costume or wearing fun overalls!)
And the kids like choosing their own pumpkins to bring home to decorate.
However, if you have little ones at home, decorating a pumpkin can turn into a lot of cleanup!
Carving pumpkins involves messy pumpkin cuts and sharp objects. Both of which are not great for little ones.
If you are looking for a pumpkin that will last a bit longer this year AND look just as cool, you can’t go wrong with these no-carve Disney pumpkins!
All of these pumpkin ideas are no carve, and you can get tons of ideas and inspiration for your next pumpkin project!
