Non Spooky Pumpkins

If you have young children, then you kind of understand the need to put a not-so-spooky spin on Halloween. That’s ok! Little kids aren’t always ready for the spooky and ghoulish decor that might be out around your neighborhood. I know my kids aren’t! In fact, my kids would love to stumble upon an Olaf pumpkin during October. I think that would just make their day! Your kids too?
How about donut pumpkins or even cupcake pumpkins? Ok, I can’t lie… Even I’m in love with these non-spooky pumpkin ideas! I’ve never been a huge fan of anything scary (spiders and snakes included). So, when it comes to Halloween decor, I always find myself picking out the friendly and fun things over the spooky and scary things. If you can relate to me, then you’ll love these non-spooky pumpkin ideas! Happy Halloween!
