Halloween is a time to get creative, and what better way to celebrate than by carving pumpkins? If you’re a cheerleader or a fan of cheerleading, why not try some cheer-themed pumpkin designs? Not only will you have a blast, but you’ll also show support for your favorite teams and gyms!
Here are six ideas to get you started:
1. Painted pumpkins
If carving isn’t your thing, don’t worry! You can still create great designs by painting them. This activity is also suitable for all ages since no tools are involved. Just choose your favorite team and get inspired!
