Fancy Pumpkins with Kids



Halloween is so fun with kids - especially 3 year old little boys.

Five of our seventeen grandchildren fit that description - so I went a little crazy this year decorating. I love the looks on their faces as they walk into our house and see spiders and witches and pumpkins.

They are all so different in their reactions - some love to turn out the lights and say "turn on the scary music!" Others say, "nooooooo!" as they cuddle with grandma.



Some of us gathered Sunday to celebrate a birthday and Canadian Thanksgiving. I thought I'd try out a litte Halloween craft - and it worked out pretty well.

THE PRODUCTS:











(The last three pictures are my pumpkins - Grandma's can have fun too)

HOW TO:

Buy plastic pumpkins at a craft store (mine were from Michaels Craft @ half price). You can spray paint them any color you like. Then use puff paints (for fabrics), acrylics, glue gun, jewels - and just have fun designing and creating.
