Halloween pumpkin decoration
These little pumpkins make cute table decorations or party favors—no sewing necessary If you make them out of felt or cotton, the children can draw faces on them with markers and decorate them with stickers and ribbons. Or you could have a game of pumpkin toss with prizes for hitting the target.
