We do not carve pumpkins in our house because both kids are still so young and because I do not handle knives well. When Daniel and I was 16, we carved a pumpkin and I was using a knife and it went straight through my thumb. It hurt so bad and there was so much blood. My Dad had to grab my thumb just to make sure it was still there. Since that day, I have never carved a pumpkin.
We asked Madison if she wanted to carve pumpkins or paint pumpkins and, thankfully, she said paint. I love pumpkin painting!
You may remember my post, The Perfect Pumpkin, from last year. This year we did things a tad bit different....
Painting pumpkins is very kid friendly, but adult supervision is required when using spray paint and hot gluing items to your pumpkin.
Madison wanted me to spray paint the pumpkin solid black. She started the spray painting and I finished it.
She told me where to place the orange spiders and I hot glued them in place.
