Our playgroup painted pumpkins in the park today. It was so fun! I asked everyone to bring a medium-sized pumpkin and an old t-shirt to cover clothes.
I covered the park's picnic tables with black disposable tablecloths. I had black, white, green, purple, blue, and pink acrylic paint that I put into disposable paint trays for each child. I had disposable cups filled with water, paint brushes, wipes, paper towels, and black sharpies to add names & small details if desired. The kids had a blast decorating their pumpkins!
After painting pumpkins, the kids played on the playground while their pumpkins dried. We had all brought picnic lunches and I made Candy Corn Cookies and Ghost Lollipops for everyone. It was a great time!
