we celebrated October first + wasted no time in marking items off our Fall Bucket List!
when we were picking out pumpkins and things over the weekend, I made sure to pick up a few pumpkin pie pumpkins with intentions to paint them all the fun colors for our front porch. of course painting + toddlers isn’t for the faint of heart and you have to be willing to allow a little mess, but honestly it took less than 3 minutes to clean up our masterpiece pumpkins after it was all said and done.
I linked all the products we used below:) we started with washable paint and I poured each color into an old muffin tin that I intended to toss after we were finished painting. Jordan’s dad owns a painting biz, so we have about a million drop cloths in our garage- this made for an easy “blanket” for the kids to sit on while they painted the pumpkins. you can get them on amazon really cheap! I think its a great thing to have on hand for this kind of activity with your kids. I also had a roll of Kraft paper that I cut into rectangles for each pumpkin painting “station”. add in a couple cups of water for cleaning the brushes and you’re all set!
we went straight to the shower after Brady decided to brush his teeth with the yellow + blue paint.. and apparently the 5 year old in the back did the same, ha!
all cleaned up after bath! the perfect matching jams from GAP and I could DIE over how cute they look together. LOVE these sweet babies!
