Decorating with Kids: Reversible Cat Pumpkin Softie!

Hi! It’s Jen from The Smitten Chicken! Today, I am sharing something that I love to do: decorate for the holidays. I love the holidays—all of them! I have a lot of fun decorations that I bring out for Fall and Halloween, but many of my decorations are breakable. As someone with a lot of kids, this is not a good combination—kids and breakables, right? I started leaving the breakables packed away, but I still missed some of my favorite decorations.

So I came up with a new solution: kid-friendly decorations!

With decorations that the kids can touch and play with, I can still put up my favorite decorations (high and out of reach) without a worry. My kids are so distracted by the fun and friendly decorations, they leave the others alone. It’s a win-win!

That’s why I was thrilled to find the Sizzix Cat-Pumpkin Bigz L Die! Each die-cut is a perfect decoration for children. My own kids went crazy playing with this. The coolest part? It’s reversible! My kids love that the die can be a cat!

Or a pumpkin!

They are always flipping it inside out.  I never know which one it will be when I walk past.

Do you want to make your décor more kid friendly?  Then you need to make one of these ASAP!  These are the supplies you will need:

Kid Giddy is the designer of this super-cute die. You can watch her tutorial at!

Once you complete your Cat Pumpkin Softie, you can share your creations! I love sharing my creations with my kids. Doesn’t this look like so much fun? It’s a cat!

It’s a pumpkin, too!

And guess what? This decoration won’t break. Mission accomplished!

To see more of what I’m up to, check out my blog, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Good luck decorating with the kids!

Chirp Out!
