Halloween Traditions! | Sparkle In Pink

Angelica Acuna| 24 Oct, 2019

Hey SIP fam,

Let’s talk traditions.

Our little SIP models every year have done something together with pumpkins around Halloween.

Halloween Pumpkin Carving... or not?

I mean that’s obvious but try carving pumpkins when when you have five kids under the age of seven. Now just imagine, all these kids so excited to have a cool cutout on their own pumpkin. You as a mom, pumped because traditions, right? You cut open that top and tell the kids to clean them out. Now, they are still pumped, and they stick their cute little hands in and instead of being all happy they start screaming and crying because it’s disgusting. You now realize you just got stuck cleaning 5 pumpkins. Ok ok, so all cleaned and now for the best part. These cool carve out papers you stick on the pumpkin, tape them on, and hand the carving tools to your excited kiddos to find out you are terrified of them possibly cutting themselves. What did I just do? Gave my momma friend and I a ton of work, that’s what I did. What were we thinking? Two hours later, they got that picture with my, I mean their carved pumpkin.

Oh but hey, I have a better idea! Let’s decorate pumpkins. How? I mean you could just use paint on them, but kids “finish” in five minutes. And it usually results in a painted brown pumpkin because they decided to mix all the colors. Catch my jam? So what we have loved for the second year in a row, is hitting up our local dollar store.

Of course we have to have all the kids in our cute matching family Jack O Lantern hoodies. We got some paint and let each kid pick out a few items of their choice, and let the kids use their imagination. They all do something different and it’s so fun to see what they decide to do. They definitely are older now and could carve, but they get excited to decorate these pumpkins like this because it’s different. A little unicorn, a spider, it’s just so fun and cute!

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cookie Recipe

Ok so after pumpkin decorating you need some fuel. So why not some easy and delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! Oh and did I mention they were easy? THREE INGREDIENTS BABY, yup just three!



  • Spice cake mix 15oz box
  • Pumpkin Puree 15oz can
  • 16 Oz bag Chocolate chips (semi-sweet) but I used milk chocolate because it’s my preference
  • (Optional) Cream cheese frosting

You can find all the directions on SugarHero.com

And just look how deliciously well-received they were!


    I don’t know about you, but I never wait for my cookies to cool. I go straight to 10 and burn my mouth every time, and never regret it HAHA. Ok so after the treat comes the cleanup. If you laid a plastic table cloth, or in my case garbage bags, just scoop it up and throw it away. Less than 10 minutes to clean up, SCORE!

    So just to show you our Halloween traditions we usually have some pumpkin shaped bread bowls that my local bakery makes, with some yummy homemade chili beans.

     It honestly is the the commence of all the holiday traditions we do together with the SIP models. Bring on the holidays!

      I love that cookie recipe! I’ve made it every year for the last few years🤤 I would love to see more crafts that are easy for the littlest of littles to make. I watch a few kiddos during the week, and they’re all around 2 years old…so something they would have fun making…bonus if it’s a learning craft! Thanks for the opportunity to win!❤

      I love those bread bowls! I would like to see some tips on how to organize, store accessories! We have so many bubble necklaces and keep buying more but I have no clue how to store them! I would also like to see some more fun ideas for keeping kids busy during holiday parties! I love your clothes so much and my daughters closet is so full I can’t fit more clothes. Although that has not stopped me from buying more!
