Things to Make Tuesday - A Painted Pumpkin


I realize most people don't paint pumpkins, they carve pumpkins. But in order to carve a pumpkin you need a knife (or a similar sharp utensil) and I have three children under the age of five. And Knives are dangerous (remember The Outsiders?). So, all things considered, one day I would love love love to carve pumpkins with my children. But that day hasn't come yet. Kudos to you who are more brave. If you want to take the easy route, however, painting is really fun. My kids loved it. We used 10 ct. 2 oz. Bottles - Assorted Color Washable Kid's Paint, which worked pretty well, but does rub off once dry, so be careful. Now we're ready for Halloween. and fall. Good times.


The finished product. I think the stripe of red really adds something special.

  1. So cute... I was wondering if I should let my soon to be 3 year olds paint pumpkins since carving was out of the question... I guess you answered my question.
