Fall is finally in the air! Leaves haven't quite changed colors yet (here in the South, for my Northern readers), but crisp mornings and shorter days are already in the making. And now, pumpkins have made their arrival. There's no going back to the blissful beach days for yet another year.
This weekend, we had the start of our fall fun festivities by picking out and painting pumpkins.
And then, there was sitting on pumpkins, which, of course, I encourage for photo opt moments. I can't help but want to photograph in a sea of orange gourds.
Then, on to finger painting our family of baby pumpkins!
It's a good substitute for our not so ready pumpkin carvers. Older kids will be creative with jack o' lantern faces and batman symbols, but my toddlers are just going to scribble pretty color designs.
It makes me happy! Art on a pumpkin.
We turned over a produce box for our outside table. It really made for an easy clean up.
Little Bud was really into it until he put his paint covered hands all over Daddy's pants. Our reaction of, "Noooo, Tyler" (when it was already too late) hurt his little baby feelings, and then his fun was OVER! Next year, I will need to put more than just little man in paint clothes for precaution.
We added a dash of Sparkle!
Glitter help was not suitable for our 3 year olds', "I'll do it myself" phase.
