Kids in the Ark-La-Tex will Love This DIY Pumpkin Smoke Bomb

Ladies and gentleman… We are a few days away from October.

I know, it’s hard to keep your level of excitement down over the realization that Halloween is right around the corner. For some, it’s the most exciting time of the year, and since I’m a bit of a Scrooge, I tend to agree.

Driving around Shreveport-Bossier, I’ve already seen countless residents getting into the Halloween spirit early, so I decided I would share my favorite Halloween DIY project with all of you.

This is a nice, new spin on the classic tradition of pumpkin carving! The best part: you only need four items to complete this project.

  • Smoke Grenades
  • Pumpkin
  • Tools for Carving
  • Camera

Once your set with all four of the items listed above, follow these steps to create a fun tradition that your family will enjoy for years to come.

  1. Find your pumpkin.
  2. Purchase your smoke grenades.
  3. Carve your pumpkin.
  4. Find an open outdoor space.
  5. Have your photographer or camera set up and ready.
  6. Pull the wire tab on the grenade and then drop it into the pumpkin.
  7. Take your photos.
