Carving jack-o-lanterns is a true and time-honored tradition, usually one that involves a ton of fear-inducing pumpkin faces. But that doesn't mean you can't shake things up this Halloween and go the spooky cute route instead. Thankfully, Target has No-Carve Pumpkin Kits inspired by Disney characters, perfect for indulging in your nostalgia without tapping into your terror.
That, and as we all know, there's one big problem when it comes to carving pumpkins: the mess. The gunky, chunky, slimy, seedy mess. It's the true horror of Halloween. But now, thanks to Target, we can all avoid the pumpkin guts littering our living room floors or front porch steps. The No-Carve Pumpkin Kits do not involve any sharp tools or pumpkin dissection, making it mess-free and, I imagine, relatively easy not to mess up.
Plus, it's perfect for those of us who never quite got over the '90s; Target's No-Carve Pumpkin Kits are all inspired by the Disney characters from your youth. If you happen to possess a bulbous orange pumpkin, you can start out by bippity-boppity-booing it into Cinderella's magical carriage (extremely full circle moment, no?). Plus, the Cinderella version of the kit retails for $10. All you have to do to make this magic is acquire the kit, stick the parts into the pumpkin, and have a ~ball~ with the rest of your pumpkin decorations. Preorders are sold out but the kits will be available on Aug. 22.
