painted weebee pumpkin

We picked up our pumpkins this weekend! Although we went in for two, we came out with…seven.

The Boy and Miss R were very excited to paint all the little weebee punkins. This is a super easy way to entertain two kids in the kitchen while making dinner. Just put down some paper to cover their work space (we used paper grocery bags on the floor), put dollops of acrylic craft paint on paper plates, find a few small brushes, and let the artists go to work.

We dried our pumpkins on wire racks overnight and then put them out in the living room to admire. Now we just need to decide on a design for the enormous pumpkin in the bay window. I’m thinking owl. Any suggestions?
