Painted Pumpkins!

Reagan loves to paint and asks to do so on a daily basis. She picked out a few pumpkins at a local market the other day and was super eager to ‘make them pretty’! I’m all about skipping the carving and adorning the pumpkins with bright beautiful colors instead.

Pumpkins
Paint (I always try to use washable)
Stickers
Egg carton
Paint brushes
Something to cover your work space

directions
Reagan picked out three pumpkins and decided to sticker and paint two, while leaving stickers off the third.
Wipe dirt off pumpkins.
Ask your child which colors they want to use and where they would like the color placed within the egg carton.
If using stickers; stick them to the pumpkin before painting.
Have them use the color names when asking for more of a specific color.
Involve your child with the clean-up process.
GET CREATIVE!!!
