One of the joys of this time of year is decorating and also carving pumpkins, fun for all ages and really brightens a front step. I didn't grow up doing this but have really adopted this lovely American tradition since living here.
Here is a very simple way to decorate a pumpkin with glitter, you simply coat with glue then sprinkle glitter over it and allow it to dry. Kids love this too, just consider doing it outdoors as its messy :-))
