{Play} Painted Pumpkins

October 20, 2011 in All Posts, Play, Toddler Activities

Well, you know that we’ve been busy decorating our pumpkins lately, so that is – of course – what today’s Toddler Thursday post is all about!


  • paint
  • paintbrushes
  • pumpkin

Keep in mind that if you use washable paint and your younger toddler decides to try to eat the painted pumpkin, his face will end up painted, too!


Jane consistently likes to start painting the surface saver and anything else first.

Then she eventually gets into painting the object we’ve chosen.

And sure enough, she always ends with painting herself!
