Carving pumpkins together is a popular Halloween tradition for many families and creates a lot of fun memories for kids excited to celebrate the spooky holiday. But young kids usually need help, and sometimes the parents do too! Coming up with fun, creative ideas for your pumpkin can be the first challenge, but it’s even more difficult to draw your design outline to guide your carving.
These free pumpkin carving templates are here to keep the fun in your family pumpkin carving activity and the frustration out of it! Simply save your favorite images and print them out. From there you can cut out your design to outline on your pumpkin, or trace it onto tissue paper which you can place on your pumpkin and outline again with a permanent marker which will seep through onto your carving surface.
