Pumpkin Painting

DSCN9938

Elin was super excited to be invited over to her cousins house for a little painting party.  She loves arts and crafts, but when you add in pumpkins it makes for an extra special experience.  It was a beautiful day which was perfect for painting outside.  My sister had so many paints, glitters, and jewels for the kids to use.

Max has had lots of experience with painting and glittering and was a good teacher at showing Elin how it was done.

They both did such a good job on their pumpkins and especially at keeping the mess to a minimum.

She also got such a fun gift bag with fun Halloween goodies!  She is loving everything and uses her cup and toys daily.

After painting, the kids ate a picnic dinner and played out in the yard for the rest if the evening,  Needless to say, Elin was sad to go home and leave all the fun she was having.

Here are the pumpkins displayed on the mantle just liked Elin asked.  My sister knew a good tip of spraying the pumpkins with a clear coat in order to cut down on glitter transfer.  They turned out so nice!
