Pumpkin Project



Yesterday was a busy day for us. Dylan had his soccer game at 9:00 am and we are proud to announce he scored two goals! After that my friend Whitney suggested we decorate pumpkins at her house since our our husbands were either away or busy all day. This idea came from a magazine and it was a fun project. We used spray paint to color the pumpkins and cut Halloween fabric for the eyes, nose, and mouth and pasted it on the pumpkin. Our kids just painted whatever they wanted on the pumpkins and added pipe cleaners for hair and glued some other decorations on the pumpkins. It was really fun and we were also pretty exhausted by the end of the afternoon. (note my grunge appearance.) I still plan on carving pumpkins but will save that until Halloween comes closer. I am lucky to have some crafty friends so I can do some of this stuff more often!
