Halloween is right around the corner and that means you’re probably spending one day during the upcoming weekends visiting a pumpkin patch (or at least heading to your local big box store) to grab a couple pumpkins to decorate and carve. Carving pumpkins is a common tradition in the United States, but unless you’re a professional artist, most of our pumpkins end up looking like a Pinterest Fail rather than an award-winning masterpiece. Luckily for us, there are free pumpkin carving stencils for Halloween that will make pumpkin carving a heck of a lot easier this year, and get you all the props from your kids (because you know you are the only one actually doing it).
Paw Patrol is rolling onto your pumpkins this Halloween! These free printables can create your child’s favorite Paw Patrol characters right onto the face of your pumpkins. Chase, Marshall, Skye, and Rocky can bring your porch to life and make your pooch-loving child smile all over. Snap a photo with your little one dressed up as their favorite character with their Paw Patrol pumpkin for a sweet memory this Halloween.
