Decorate A Pumpkin Playdate Budget Craft Idea!

We CUBLOVE the Dollar Store for budget  friendly playdate inspiration. You’d be surprised how many playdates you can come up with under $10. We wanted to share what we found on our most recent trip and give you some tips on how to make a fun fall themed playdate and craft for the cubs to enjoy!

Decorate a Pumpkin and turn this into a fun playdate

  1. Invite friends over to decorate pumpkins
  2. Provide a snack: 
    • Caramel apples– Cut up apples and dip in sundae caramel or fudge, and let the toddlers roll their apples in sprinkles or crushed graham crackers

What we bought:

  1. Pumpkins
  2. Glue Stick
  3. Foam or Felt Letters
  4. Pom Poms
  5. Pipe Cleaner
  6. A little imagination


How to assemble: 

  • Layout all the materials for easy access for your little cub. Try to only layout what they need to avoid unnecessary messes.
  • Show them how to apply the glue and materials to their pumpkin
  • Of course you have to keep a close eye on the little ones incase they want to “sample” the materials or glue…
  • Let them get creative and pick what they want
