Decorating pumpkins for the school's pumpkin contest has ALWAYS been a big thing around our house. .
There's something fun about doing an art project on the big 'ole punkins!! This year was no different; and Cami got to make one for preschool too!
I thought they turned out sooo cute.
We didn't really know what we were up to until we sat down with it.
I found some cute little sparkly foam flower stickers at Walmart last week. .which is what we eventually went with. .I saw some cute modge-podged punkins online. .but she wasn't biting. .may have to try some ALL by myself!! The sparkles won her attention!
She worked for an hour with a small paint brush and some off white paint. .
I prefer to think that I was helping her develop fine motor skills by letting her use a small paint brush (instead of prolonging the peace and quiet by making her use a small paint brush)!
We came up with lots of possibilities for Dev's pumpkin. .We ended with the idea to use candy (licorice, jelly beans, and a circus peanut nose) to make a witch on the pumpkin.
while searching the internet. .I came up with Mike from monster's inc. .and knew he would love that because his initial idea was to make an alien pumpkin!!
He loved. .L-O-V-E-D the idea when he saw the photo. .
and I gotta say. .
His turned out pretty cute too!!
Other than outlining the teeth for him with permanent marker, cutting the foam hands and feet, and helping him glue the appendages on. .He did the whole thing himself. .
In fact, we had to take his picture later that evening because he burned his finger with the hot glue gun, and tragically, couldn't smile after that at all!!
