Painting Pumpkins with PreSchoolers

This year we decided to paint our pumpkins rather than carve them. For the last two years we have carved our pumpkins, once outside which was okay and once inside which was one of the messiest things I have ever done. But, this year my 3 year old said "I want to paint my pumpkin" so we went with it.

This was not only less messy than carving but took a total of 15 minutes which is just the right amount of time for a 3 year old before they get bored. She could also do it herself instead of me or my husband doing the actual creating.

All you need is paint, paint brush and a pumpkin. Super easy. We are not putting out our pumpkins until Halloween so that if it rains the colors don't run onto our steps.
