During lockdown we all loved spotting rainbows in people’s windows on our daily walks, so when I saw Doncaster Mumbler came up with a pumpkin version, I knew we had to get involved!
Now that we are back at school, a bit of normality has resumed, but things are still uncertain. Team Mumbler have started preparing the October half term and Bonfire Night areas of the Norwich Mumbler website and we realised that Trick or Treating will be a bit different this year.
We usually love getting dressed up and the kids love Trick or Treating in our local area, however this year the prospect of them dipping their hands in various buckets of sweets seems a bit unlikely. There are also going to be a lot more people who might not want people knocking on their doors randomly.
So, the pumpkin trail idea was born!
Similar to the rainbows, children can make a pumpkin picture and put it in their window. You could even share this with your neighbours so they can get involved to make spotting quick and easy! We can then see how many pumpkins children can spot as they go out over Halloween, maybe get a sweet for each one they spot? (Please eat responsibly 😀 )
I’ve created a downloadable Pumpkin Trick or Treat Colouring sheet HERE that you can print off.
