Decorating with Butternut Squash

Sharing is caring!

When my son saw the scarecrow in our neighbor’s front yard, he begged me to get one ourselves. So we jumped into the car and drove to the closest craft store.  There he got distracted by all the pumpkins and almost forgot about the scarecrow. I managed to unglue him from the pumpkin bin only after I promised that we would look for some real ones. (I never liked the plastic pumpkins). So we got back into our car and drove to Costco but, to our great disappointment, they didn’t have any yet. On our way back we stopped at the grocery store and I picked a few butternut squashes.

I know it’s not the same as the big round pumpkins but decorating with butternut squashes can also be fun.

Once my kids saw the butternut squash creatures I made, they started playing a guess game: What’s each of the creatures thinking about?

You can use turn the butternut squashes into all sort of creatures, monsters or you can paint them white and make them look like ghosts. Use fluorescent colors or neon googly eyes. Add a funny party hat, a fake mustache or nerd glasses.
