25+ No Carve Pumpkin Painting Ideas

Pin It
Not all kids (or parents) enjoy the pumpkin carving process. Children with autism or sensory processing disorders find it uncomfortable. Parents find it too messy. I totally get it. I honestly don't enjoy the squishy-guishy feeling of pulling out the innards of a pumpkin. That's why I put together this collection of no carve pumpkin decorating ideas.
 

I was going through some old pictures and found these ones of when Bear was in his Octonauts phase and I painted our Halloween pumpkins in different characters for him.  He had some sensory issues when he was younger, and didn't want a thing to do with the carving process.
 

Here are some other incredibly creative no-carve pumpkin ideas you can do with your kiddos!
