Your Kids Will Love These $10 No-Carve Pumpkin Decorating Kits

How cute are these?

It’s almost the season of spooky ghosts and goblins — and getting pumpkin guts everywhere while trying to carve a jack-o’-lantern.

While I personally believe some of the fun is in the ooey-gooey mess, if you’d rather your kids stay clean when decorating pumpkins this year, you may want to look into picking up some pumpkin decorating kits. Target has some brand new kits that will turn your pumpkins into a work of art, but without all the cutting and sloppiness that comes along with pumpkin carving.

Target was taking pre-orders for the kits but, unsurprisingly, they’re already sold out! But you’ll be able to find them in stores and online again on Aug. 22 and, of course, until Halloween.

Each kit is only $10 and you’ll save 5% off your purchase and get free shipping if you’re a Target REDcard holder. From Paw Patrol to Disney and superheroes, it looks like you’ll definitely be able to find a kit your child will love.

Take a look at just some of the kits you’ll be able to find in stores soon.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Pumpkin Decorating Kit

While this will work on any pumpkin, you might first want to paint it white or get a fake pumpkin that’s already white. Then, just insert the push-ins and you have a Jack Skellington jack-o’-lantern!


Marvel Captain America Pumpkin Decorating Kit

If you have any Marvel fans at home, you’re definitely going to need this Captain America decorating kit. You’ll most likely want a blue pumpkin, so you’ll need to pick up some paint along with the kit. The kit itself includes a face, arms, shield and star decoration.


Disney Cinderella Pumpkin Decorating Kit

Spray paint your pumpkin teal before decorating it with this Cinderella theme. The kit includes an image of Cinderella riding in the carriage, wheels and other decorative details.


PAW Patrol Marshall Pumpkin Decorating Kit

How adorable is this PAW Patrol Marshall pumpkin kit?! Paint your pumpkin is red for this one, as the pumpkin serves as Marshall’s body. The kit includes his head and four legs.


Disney Minnie Mouse Pumpkin Decorating Kit

This Disney Minnie Mouse pumpkin kit is perfect for Halloween because Minnie is disguised as a witch! Your pumpkin can be any color for this one, but you might want to go with purple or pink to match her outfit.


If you’d rather spend less than $10, you can also find less detailed $3 kits including a unicorn, witch and llama. These kits will be available Sept. 8.


Will you be forgoing pumpkin-carving this year for a less-messy pumpkin kit?
