This Pumpkin Painting activity is so easy to set up and is a great way to keep little ones busy in the Fall.
It’s pumpkin season and it wouldn’t be complete without some pumpkin painting, right? For this year, I’ve chosen some white pumpkins I found at Trader Joe’s for only .69 cents each. That’s a deal right there! I prefer painting white pumpkins with the kids because you can see all the paint colors unlike on an orange pumpkin. My kids are always so intriged by this activity. They want to create something unique and special every year, so they get super focused trying their best to make their pumpkins pretty. Always a pretty sight for parents to see their kids doing their best work!
Take a look at how easy it is to set this activity up!
