How to make your pumpkin glow with blue flames

What you need:

A few other things you might want to have on hand:

  • Running water or damp towel
  • Fire extinguisher

As I said above this is not something for children to do alone.  Adults need to be present while doing this since fire is involved.   The good thing is these flames can easily be blown out, or put out with water, a damp towel or a  fire extinguisher.

Start by pouring and dripping hand sanitizer all over the outside of your pumpkin or jack-o-lantern.  You need  to coat it generous to get a good flame.  Use a lighter to start it on fire. Watch the blue flames cover your pumpkin in seconds!  We did this 5 times, it did start the dry stem on fire but the rest of the pumpkin looked the same even after the fire was out.

The flames will last a few seconds up to 3-4 minutes depending on how much fuel/ hand sanitizer you put on.  Please note it is VERY IMPORTANT TO NOT ADD MORE SANITIZER WHILE THE FLAMES ARE GOING.  You must wait till all the flames are out to add more.   If you add it while the fire is still going it can travel up and catch the whole bottle on fire.

Be safe, have fun and I hope you have had fun learning ,  How to make your pumpkin glow with blue flames!

My two year old and I made a Pumpkin Face Spinner today before nap time. We had so much fun making it. I let her color the pumpkins, while I used scissors to cut out the pumpkin. We made a good team and she loved how it turned out. She even took it to bed for nap-time. An easy low cost  Halloween craft project perfect for school parties, family parties, Boy Scouts or other groups of kids! Hope your kids love making this Pumpkin Face Spinner!halloween-crafts-for-kids-pumpkin-face-spinner-low-cost-and-easy-perfect-for-a-school-party-or-church-group-boy-or-girl-scout-halloween-craft-ideas

Pumpkin Face Spinner ~ Easy Halloween Crafts for Kids

What you need to make your Pumpkin Face Spinner:

You can buy all the supplies for your Pumpkin Face Spinner online, or you can find most of them at your local dollar store. I found everything I needed for this project at, Dollar Tree. I love that this Halloween craft is low cost but, still loaded with fun.  As my kids came home from school they all wanted to spin it and see all the silly faces, even my older kids.

Start by drawing or tracing a pumpkin shape on the bottom edge of the black plate. If you do not feel like you can draw a pumpkin shape there are printable pumpkins shapes here. Use a pair of scissors to cut out the pumpkin shape.  I did this part of the project and let my 2 year old do the coloring.

Next, place the black plate on top of the white plate. Use a pencil to trace the pumpkin shape onto the white plate. Spin the plate until you make it all the way around the plate with pumpkin shapes.  Color the pumpkins first then add the faces. We tried crayons, but loved the bold bright colors that we got with the orange Sharpie markers.  If you use markers make sure they are permanent  so they do not smear all over.

Once your child is done coloring, place the black plate on top. Find the center of the plate and press a brad through and separate the brad legs in back to secure the to plates together. You will want to try to put the brad as close to the middle as you can.  If you get it off centered, the plates will get a lopsided as you spin them.

Don’t want to chop up your pumpkin, but still want to get into the Halloween spirit? This Candy Corn Pumpkin is the perfect solution as SO CUTE!  Super easy to make and turns out adorable every time! Candy Corn Pumpkin, easy way to decorate a pumpkin without carving it #PumpkinIdeas, Perfect for Kids, #Halloween, #CandyCornCandy corns happen to be one of my favorite candy, and they make me think of fall.  I saw a candy corn pumpkin a few years ago and have always wanted to make one. Yesterday I finally took the time to paint one with my girls.  It was a quick and easy project that the girls had a fun time making.  I like the cute side of Halloween (not the ghost and goblins) so I am pretty excited about this adorable new pumpkin sitting on my front porch.

Candy Corn Pumpkin, easy way to decorate a pumpkin without carving it #PumpkinIdeas, Perfect for Kids, #Halloween, #CandyCornWe used a craft sponge to paint the Candy Corn Pumpkin.  I put the paint right on the sponge and then started to dab it on the pumpkin. I started with white on the top then did the yellow on the bottom.  We did two coats to cover the pumpkin, but if you use a good quality paint you might only have to do one layer.

I know healthy Halloween treats do not sound very fun, but I think these ideas will change your mind. Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a child. One of the main reasons was because it meant I got CANDY. Most of which I wanted to eat all in one night.  My Mom always made a point to feed us a food dinner so our tummy would be full of good food before we started to try and fill it with sugar.  Most Halloween parties you go to are going to have lots of sweet treats, so it is great to add a few healthy Halloween options in there too.

Below you will find a list of healthy Halloween treats. Most of which are crazy easy to make!  Pick out a few of your favorites  to add to your Halloween party, or dinner! My kids all have a favorite that they ask for every year. Best is they do not even realize they are a healthy Halloween option. They just think they are FUN!
