With Halloween right around the corner, it's time to decorate those pumpkins! Now if your kids are anything like my kiddos, this can be an incredibly messy process. Last year, for example, we somehow would up with pumpkin seeds and goo all over everything....Including the ceiling! How pumpkin got all the way up there, I could only guess....That's a different post entirely, though.
Anyway, this year, we're trying something new...Something a lot less messy, too!
Did you know that Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers are fade resistant, and can stand up to things like sun and UV rays? That's right! They can also be used on virtually any surface, including wood, plastic, and even glass. Yes, folks, these great markers will also work on the outer flesh of your pumpkins.
We received a nice assortment of Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers to check out for ourselves. These markers come in packages of both classic black, as well as an assortment of colors that includes Black, Blue, Red, and Green.
Sharpie Extreme delivers bold colors on variety of surfaces, including plastic, glass and wood, so when it comes to decorating pumpkins, there’s no problem and no mess! Even better, Sharpie Extreme resists fading when exposed to extreme outdoor weather conditions like rain, snow and mud, helping your spooktacular designs last all month for the big day.
Kyle, my 16 year old, couldn't wait to decorate his pumpkin using Sharpie Extreme markers. He actually did 2 sides of the pumpkin, creating a couple of very different looks.
One side has a neat, celestial scene that features the moon and stars, and even a witch's broom. Pretty cool, right?
On the other side, Kyle did a traditional face on the pumpkin.
Using these markers made decorating the pumpkin quick and easy, and Kyle absolutely loved how these colors didn't streak, bleed, or smear. They're quick-drying, which helps eliminate any room for errors.
We've been quite impressed with just how well these markers have withstood our often gross Ohio weather. Wind, rain, mud, and sun are no match for these very durable, permanent markers. Our pumpkins have been sitting outside for over a week, and there's been absolutely no fading, and the designs look fresh and new.
If you're looking for a fool-proof way to decorate those pumpkins without the mess of traditional carving, definitely check out Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers. I think you'll be as pleasantly surprised as we were!
Sharpie Extreme Markers come in handy when Halloween is over, too! Try these markers to label things around the house,garage, and any other artistic ventures you may have this season!
