Spooky Fun Pumpkin Colouring Sheet

Get creative this Halloween with our spooktacular pumpkin colouring sheet.

The Explore Essex team are sorry that we could not bring you Spooky Fun at Cressing Temple Barns and other Halloween activities this year, however we’ve pulled together our own Spooky Fun Pumpkin colouring sheet to help children (and adults) join safe, socially-distanced, ‘Hunt the Pumpkin’ fun, to spread a little seasonal cheer in your communities.

You can use our colouring template to create your own spooktacular pumpkin design and share it in your window ready to be spotted by families over half-term and Halloween.

You can download your template as a jpg here or pdf here.

But don’t worry if you don’t have a printer, or simply want to create your own. We want to help you get creative. Draw your own, use chalks in your driveway, share your creations in your window or front garden for all your neighbours to appreciate, and spread some spooky seasonal joy.

Make sure to take a photo of your creation, or even a short video of the making and share them with us and all your friends and family.

Upload to Facebook and Instagram for us to see @exploressex and why not share how you created yours using these hashtags #NeighbourhoodPumpkinTrail #EssexPumpkinHunt

Make sure you are aware of the latest government guidance and social distancing rules here.

Hoping to help you stay safe, well and happy.

Love the Explore Essex Team.
