Craft Pumpkin ??

I want to make one for Elise instead of carving a real pumpkin which will rot..Does anyone know if these foam pumpkins are good for carving?

    We brought one but it was already painted with glitter. I will never do glitter in my home again...glitter is banned. Lol
    I am not sure if you can cut into them even a little, but I know they can be painted using craft paints. Pinterest has a lot of that stuff for ideas.

    We are getting a pumpkin for the kids, but I am probably going to have them paint them this year.

      It's like flour and water (homemade paste).. you dip strips of paper in it then mold the shape you want. A balloon blown up would be perfect for a pumpkin.

      Paper mache is awesome and inexpensive. You can use old newspapers and ingredients you have at home. I totally forgot about it. I have not done it since I was in school, but it would be fun to try with the kids.
