Painting Pumpkins with Children

Hello, hello everyone! I’m so glad that you have stopped by to see what’s going on at Anne’s Attic – design. I’m sure that many of you have been having a fun time celebrating Fall and doing great Halloween projects. I want to share one that I did with my grandchildren.

We have a tradition to go and pick out their own personal little pumpkin and then to bring it home and paint it anyway they want!

After last years painting party I decided to take the children’s shirts off to spare their mother grief. Acrylic’s really doesn’t come out of clothing very well. The children started out painting cute faces on their pumpkins but then decided that they weren’t getting enough painting time in so they painted their pumpkins their favorite colors. Next year grandma will get them each two pumpkins. They had a ball, I was really surprised that most of the paint was on the pumpkin and not one them! LOL

What kind of traditions do you have in your family? I would love it if you would share your Fall and Halloween traditions with me whether they be with or without pumpkins.

See you soon! Have a great Fall day!
