Pumpkin Hunt Treats

Next weekend is our first ever kids Halloween party.  Yay!  One of the activities I have in mind is to do an Easter egg hunt with pumpkins.  I saw this super cute idea from Martha Stewart to have tear open treat pouches shaped like pumpkins.  I thought it would be great to use those for a little pumpkin hunt.

I just filled them with a piece of candy and a sticker, nothing too crazy because the kids will have goodie bags, too.


  • Orange tissue paper
  • Green masking tape or florist tape (they had the green masking tape in the school supply aisle at Target)
  • Candy, stickers, or small toys to wrap up in pumpkins
  1. Cut the tissue paper into 4 pieces, or whatever size necessary to wrap up around your goodies.
  2. Pull up the corners and twist around the top to form a stem and close up the tissue paper.
  3. Wrap tape around the top, and then twist excess to form the vine.  Fold a larger square at the end to be a leaf.
Very simple, and I like that it's more the impression of a pumpkin than these perfect pumpkin shapes like crazy Martha made.  ;)
