Create a pattern towards the top of your pumpkin, using small pieces of cut painters tape. I did not measure the pieces of tape that I cut, nor did I measure the distance between each piece of tape. I wasn’t concerned with this pumpkin being perfect. If you are, just measure the tape and distance between each piece, so that it’s perfect.

Follow top pattern an inch or two ( eye balled) bellow the top pattern. Cut pieces of painters tape and continue until your pattern covers the pumpkin.

Tape off stem, so that it is covered during painting.

Place pumpkin outside on top of something that you don’t mind getting a little paint on. Spray your pumpkin with chosen color paint. I ran out of paint, but again, I wasn’t shooting for perfection, so I wasn’t disappointed.

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

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!!!
