Every year I forget about simple Halloween Decor. This year I was at the store and saw a cute bunch of tiny pumpkins and remembered Pumpkin Painting, so I snagged them!
Whenever the kids get antsy for a project, we will pull out a pumpkin and let them paint it to their hearts content. Then we use the finished and unfinished pumpkins as counter and table decorations in our kitchen.
You can paint them any color you want, make faces and get as fancy or keep it as simple as you like. We used glow-in-the-dark paint to finish these 2 off.
As you can see, they love them and are so proud of their work.
My favorite pumpkin looks are the cute ones with stripes and polka dots. You can use masking tape to help make the stripes and dots. But, that will have to be for next year for me!

Cute and easy idea! I have a bunch of little pumpkins but just haven’t gotten around to doing anything with them yet. This is on the activity list for my family this weekend. Thanks!
