Teenie Halloweenie, a spookily good party

Halloween is, for the gang at Riverside Cares, the best of times,  all the things we love come together. In between our usual stuff … finding you terrific childcare jobs and staff and teaching, we have a hauntingly impressive burst of creativity. We start carving pumpkins, prepping for spooky trick or treat and sharing some of the best #crafthacks from around the globe. All rounded off with our annual free pop up party for under 7’s Teenie Halloweenie (this year we’re back at Stepney City Farm again on the morning of September 27th).

Im so not over the


hollow out your pumpkin in the normal way

draw your design on with a sharpie

trace of it with a sharp blade (adult on task)

simply scrape off the pumpkin skin

Dry the outer flesh a little bit by patting it with a paper towel

Using water colours paint the background as dreamily as you wish

and if you’re fishing for compliments, Kindra thought of this one too which of course we love and have to make very soon. Don’t forget to tag us in when you post your pumpkiniant carvings (thats a pumpkin and brilliant mashup word)
