All children want to decorate pumpkins. My daughter couldn’t wait to get her hands on a pumpkin. A very easy (although a little messy) way for kids to decorate pumpkins is with acrylic paint. You can pick up a very inexpensive set of paints and brushes at your local craft store.
I purchased three little pumpkins for my daughter to decorate. I covered our dining room table with plastic, set up the paints and let her decorate the pumpkins. We had a great time. It was such an easy, inexpensive way to spend an afternoon doing a Halloween project.
