(20 crafty days of halloween) pumpkin painting play date

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample from CraftProjectIdeas.com for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Pick up some miniature pumpkins and invite your kiddo’s friends over for a fun pumpkin painting play date this fall! If you don’t have time to plan a play date, set up this festive project just for you and your child. They’ll appreciate the one on one time and this might just turn into a Halloween tradition, like it is at our house. If you are worried about the mess, take this project outside and cover the area with garbage bags. Easy cleanup! My typically rambunctious 3 year old had the utmost patience with this activity, so you might be pleasantly surprised at how well your kids will do. Happy Halloween!

Cover the area where the children will be painting with kraft paper. Place pom poms, jewels, googly eyes, small cups, paint and brushes on the trays. Place the miniature pumpkins in the middle of the trays. Fill the small cups with washable craft glue. Have the kids paint and decorate their pumpkins! Kids can paint with the brushes and use the q-tips to put glue on their painted pumpkins for their embellishments. Set aside to dry before displaying them.
