Every year my husband and I carve Jack-O-Lanterns and enjoy displaying them outside during the days leading up to Halloween. Usually we go for scary pumpkins, but this year the munchkin is old enough to participate in some spooky fun so I’ve been looking for kid-friendly pumpkin patterns. Below are 15 of the best free templates I found. I had specific criteria in mind when selecting them: they had to be easy, not too scary and creative enough to bring the Halloween spirit to life. Which one is your favorite? I think we’ll be doing a Tigger pumpkin and a Bat in the Moon pumpkin this year!
Note: Use the “click for pattern” link below each image to print the templates.
