While I was looking for fall craft ideas for the family to make, I found a fun story about how one mom just lets her kids have fun painting pumpkins however they wanted. What makes this such a special time of year is the kid’s excitement and fascination with pumpkins. Of course there are all different ways your kids can paint pumpkins to decorate for the season, scary or happy faced pumpkins, something with a favorite character, or something ghoulish to haunt for Halloween.
But I liked that this mom just let her son pick out three “baby punkins” one for each of her children and just got out the paint and let them do their own thing and create whatever they wanted. No rules or special ideas to follow. What a fun way to get the kids involved in your fall/Halloween decorating.
Here’s a link to the story I read so you can check it out too. Have some fun this fall and let your kids be creative … paint some pumpkins!
