Now that October is here we are getting into the Halloween spirit. I put out all my fall decorations a couple of weeks ago. This week I am going to switch some of these out for our Halloween decor. I never really liked this holiday until we had the wilds. Having the kids make it so much more fun. And they get so excited when we decorate.
We were rained in all weekend. I knew this was going to be the case so I grabbed a few supplies. I always try to do some sort of craft or recipe with the boys when we are stuck inside. I picked up a small pumpkin for each of them with the thought that they could paint them. They love to paint.
When I told them the plans they were super excited! I put wax paper down, pulled out all my paints and a couple of brushes, and let them go to town. I love seeing that they come up with. Watching their little imaginations at work is one of my most favorite things. Logan opted for multi color and Nathan went with a solid color.
This craft was so much fun, easy peasy, and very inexpensive. If you decide to do this craft yourself just make sure that you use acrylic paint so that it will stick to the pumpkin. If you use water color or washable paint it will come right off the pumpkin. Make sure your pumpkin is clean and nice and dry before applying any paint.
I was feeling creative so I created a Halloween Subway Art Printable. I love Subway Art for every holiday. I put them in frames and use them as part of my holiday decor. You can download the one I made and use it for you own viewing pleasure. Let me know if you use it, I’d love to see what you do with it.
Have you done any Halloween crafting yet this year?
