DIY Ceramic Pumpkin Banks
Better than expected
I bought these for a girl scout Halloween party. When they arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. They were well protected for shipping, with each pumpkin separated from the others by cardboard dividers within the box. They were larger than I had expected from the description. They were simple to paint. The girls who have trouble with hand-eye coordination could just paint a solid orange, while the girls who were more advanced could add more detail on their own.

Big hit with children - parents!
We had 150 children at our annual corporate fall event. The banks fit even the smallest hands perfectly. We used washable non-toxic tempera paint and the banks dried within an hour. We placed a penny in each bank and the children were thrilled. I think they loved the sound of that penny rattling around in their pumpkins!

We painted these at our Harvest Party. Everyone truly enjoyed this. It was more popular than pumpkin carving.

I am the class mom for a 3rd grade class. I purchased this for our Halloween Class Party. I was pleasantly surprised how much the kids genuinely loved getting these as the activity for the event. I really wasn't sure if it was too immmature but they loved it! I feared they were going to be really small but was pleasantly surprised at their size. I would definitely recommend them and would definitely buy them again if I am ever a class mom again.

Loved This Craft!
I bought these pumpkins for my 8 year old sons Halloween class party and they were a huge hit!! The kids were thrilled that were getting to paint and really made some cute and clever pumpkins. The parents loved them because it was something the kids could have as a 3rd grade keepsake. The quality of the product was excellent as was the packaging. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a great party idea. The compliments from the kids and especially the parents was overwhelming!

Very happy with this purchase!
I was very surprised at how well this was packaged.
The children painted the Pumpkin Banks and I was really surprised at how well it took the acrylic paint, It dried really quick. My class was of 7-13 year old, they just loved it and the parents thought what a practical project. It made my job much easier.

I have had hit or miss with some of Oriental Tradings products, but this one was a winner. I purchased acrylic paint, paint brushes, and table clothes, then let the 2nd graders have fun with their Pumpkin Banks. At the end I gave everyone a quarter to put into their new bank. I received positive feedback from the parents and the kids. Also, none of the pumpkins were broken and that is a treat in itself. I could easily see doing this project for my 4th grader.
