Tis the season for pumpkin everything! And since Ada just loves to paint, I figured a pumpkin painting party would be the perfect way to celebrate fall/Halloween. Plus, carving a pumpkin with a two year old sounds like a terrible mess! This way, we can still decorate a pumpkin without all the cleanup. Win, win!
Last week, the weather was perfect for painting outside. I just cut open a large black garbage bag to put over my table to help contain the paint and we used Crayola’s Washable Paint (which is amazing, btw!). I also had colorful Halloween stickers and pumpkin tattoos for the kids to use.
Inside, we had some tasty goodies to enjoy! Apple cider & pumpkin donuts, s’mores cookies, pretzels, apple slices with caramel, and hot apple cider. The kids were definitely running around with a sugar high by the end of the party. But it was totally worth it! 😉
I found these adorable party favor bags in the dollar section of Target! I just love the bright colors! I filled the bags with fun size bags of M&Ms and they also got to take home a kitty pumpkin tattoo.
We all had so much fun and I had a blast putting it all together! Ada is still talking about painting pumpkins so it sounds like I need to go pick up some more pumpkins! 😉 Happy early Halloween ya’ll!
