Few things say fall (or Halloween) quite like pumpkins, am I right? That’s why a pumpkin printable (or 8) is a must have! From home décor to keeping the kiddos entertained, there’s a lot you can do with a printable pumpkin template; below are some of my favorite ideas.
This free pumpkin printable is fun but still classy. (The smiley face pumpkin printables in the second half of this article are more whimsical, if that’s the look you’re going for.) You could use these to decorate your home or incorporate them into fall craft projects for the kiddos.
While these aren’t printable pumpkin coloring pages (those are below), your kiddos can still have fun. For example, give them googly eyes, buttons, washable markers (emphasis on washable!), or found objects and let them give the pumpkin printable a face. You could even give them some glitter to add to this art project! (The thought of giving your kiddos glitter is probably pretty scary, but it is the spooky season, right?)

This fall, add a touch of whimsy to your home with this free smiley face pumpkin printable! Since this pumpkin is already colored in and has a face, it’s probably much better suited to decorating your home than a craft project.
