How To Paint A Pumpkin - Toddler Style

Start with an eager toddler and a clean, white pumpkin...

Carefully dip your clean paint brush into the first color...

Then dip your next brush into the second color...

Spend a few moments keeping your colors separate and neat, like Mommy tells you too...

And then throw all caution to the wind and just go crazy with mixing the colors...

If you follow these directions very carefully, you can end up with a masterpiece just like this...

  6. I don't think I will ever be brave enough to let Madaline use paints!!

    It looks like she has a good time!!

    Happy WW to you!

  7. Beautiful!! I want to try this with my boys this year!!

  9. What a great idea. I'd never have thought of it. The pumpkins have such thick shells they are not easy to carve. And you can always still bake it later. Just goes to show that can paint your pumpkin and eat it too.

  10. I love the concentration on her face. So adorable--and great work!

  11. Now that is how you are supposed to do it! 2 hands are better than one! What a masterpiece!
