Our family was here over weekend, that means all five of our blended family of children were together for a fun filled weekend of having fun. One idea that I had the week prior was to create water jug pumpkins and so we did it! I made sure to have all of the supplies handy and my step Mom supplied me with plenty of water jugs for this craft.
What you will need; permanent makers, orange glow sticks, water jugs.
Miss Ki didn’t want to take part in this fun craft idea, but all of the other children had fun creating their own pumpkin faces.
While this was a super fun activity to do as a family, we found that the water jug pumpkins were looking best on one night outside. The glow sticks we used simply were not enough light to keep them glowing as bright as day one. Just glad we were able to do something altogether as a family that was fun and each child put their own creativity into their own water jug pumpkin.
Basically you have fun taking all of the supplies referenced above drawing on the water jugs, insert rocks or water in the button of the jug to ensure they don’t blow away while on display outside your front door and then insert the glow stick or other item that can make it glow and voila!
There you have a cheap, creative craft for Halloween that any family member can enjoy creating!
