Fancy Pumpkins with Kids


Halloween is so fun with kids – especially 3 year old little boys.

Five of our seventeen grandchildren fit that description – so I went a little crazy this year decorating. I love the looks on their faces as they walk into our house and see spiders and witches and pumpkins.

They are all so different in their reactions – some love to turn out the lights and say “turn on the scary music!” Others say, “nooooooo!” as they cuddle with grandma.

Some of us gathered Sunday to celebrate a birthday and Canadian Thanksgiving. I thought I’d try out a litte Halloween craft – and it worked out pretty well.

THE PROCESS:

THE PRODUCTS:

(The last three pictures are my pumpkins – Grandma’s can have fun too)

HOW TO:

Buy plastic pumpkins at a craft store (mine were from Michaels Craft @ half price). You can spray paint them any color you like. Then use puff paints (for fabrics), acrylics, glue gun, jewels – and just have fun designing and creating.
