Pumpkin art is a necessity for this time of year. Carving is a no-brainer, but for little kids, carving pumpkins is very hard, and usually turns into a bored kid while the parent does most of the work. Painting pumpkins were a great idea this year when we had tons of little cousins doing pumpkins together. Unfortunately the paint was relocated, so last minute decisions turn it into Pumpkin Coloring! Washable markers are the best option, especially if the pumpkins are going to be outside, but for our kids, it was a great idea!
