I have this big part of me that wants to be a bit original. For example, I bought my Mini Cooper before that movie (The Italian Job) came out and made the Mini mainstream. I loved having a car that not many people knew about. I’m still a bit frustrated about how I started off feeling original and ended up feeling like a lemming….you know…just following the crowd.
Why I the world am I telling you this…?
Well, I wanted to give J an opportunity to decorate his pumpkin in a new and original way that hasn’t been done over and over again. Well, my creative juices are just not flowing very well this week and I came up with nothing…nada.
Then I thought about it….finger painting pumpkins is such a great learning experience for this age. So, I gave up trying to be original and let J finger paint his pumpkin….and boy am I glad I did!
Painting the pumpkin soon turned into….
learning how to open and close the paint containers…
how to squeeze the paint onto the pumpkin….
and then how to put the paints back in the box.
How have your children decorated pumpkins this year?
