Decorating Pumpkins - without the MESS!

Posted on September 24, 2012 | By kayla

Happy Fall!

We're so excited about the fall season! There are so many fun craftivities and lessons that we've been itching to share. Since pumpkin carving is one of our favorite fall activities, we thought we'd try to find some fun, 'no mess' alternatives that would be appropriate for the preschool classroom. Here's a few of options you might consider exploring with your kiddos this autumn!
