Halloween Pumpkins Water Jug Craft

Creative Pumpkin Halloween Water Jugs

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.

Glowing Water Jug Pumpkin Craft

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 it, a low cost, creative halloween crafts for kids addition for your holiday crafting pleasure.

How Do I Roast Pumpkin Seeds?

It’s a time honored tradition around these parts; the pumpkins get carved each year into cute little faces or alien looking creatures and then the pumpkin guts are separated from the pumpkin seeds.

Pumpkin Seed Roasting

The only reason we go through this hassle of messy, sticky, ickiness is because we just love our roasted pumpkin seeds. The daughter helped a lot with separating of pumpkin seeds and guts.


Finally we had all of the pumpkin seeds separated. We preheated the oven to 450 degrees and spread the seeds onto one baking sheet.

Pumpkin Seeds Read to Roast

Once the seeds are placed onto the baking sheet we apply salt to them. After my failed attempt to season the pumpkin seeds with more than just salt for a flavor last year, I decided to stick with just salt this year. Salt was sprinkled across the top of all seeds, seeds were turned a bit, tossed around so to speak and then salted again prior to being placed in the 450 degree oven.

Roasted Pumpkin seeds

After about 15 – 20 minutes of bake time the pumpkin seeds came out perfect. I had darker seeds for the daughter who enjoys those darker salty pumpkin seeds while the lighter ones were enjoyed by myself and my seven year old son.

Quick Directions – How to Roast Pumpkin Seeds

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Gut your pumpkins – get all those seeds out of them and place on hard service.
  • Clean Pumpkin Seeds so that there is minimal, if any, pumpkin on them.
  • Spread pumpkin seeds evenly on baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle with salt and/or other seasonings {garlic powder or salt is a great addition}
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Let cool before eating.

For us, this is the best part of Halloween. I am sure the kids will say Trick or Treating is the best, but I say that roasting pumpkin seeds is the best!

Have you ever roasted pumpkin seeds before?
