I posted this idea for Prayer Pumpkins last year on my personal blog. It was such a hit with the kids that we are definitely doing it again, so I thought I’d share it with all of you.
I wrote on the pumpkins with Sharpie metallic markers, and I think they turned out pretty cool looking. They also lasted a really long time- I finally threw them away around Christmas time, but they still hadn’t molded.
Update 2016: We did one Prayer Pumpkin this year (using a pie pumpkin), and added one name at a time to it with a black permanent marker. It would also be fun to add specific prayer requests for each day, so you could see how God answers prayer!
I loved that we were at church and a friend was telling us about her newborn niece who had pneumonia, and my kids piped right up how we needed to write her name on our prayer pumpkin so we could remember to pray for her!
