Last year, I decided that our Halloween crafts should be easy to make – really easy. So I bought some paint, set up a table outside on a nice day, and let the kids paint their pumpkins.
If you, too, have no time to spend on the super-cool decorations that all your neighbors have, try this!
What you need:
- Pumpkins, real or craft
- Acrylic paint (won't come off a pumpkin that's out in the rain)
- Paint brushes
- Cups of water to wash off the brushes
What you do:
- If you're using real pumpkins, wash and dry them.
- Set your pumpkins on a table or other surface.
- Paint! (See, easy)
Remember that acrylic paint is permanent, so be sure to cover your painting surface and cover your kids while you're at it.
For a shiny look, use metallic paints!
