Glitter Pumpkins!

This was a really fun activity for my children!  
My children LOVE painting and LOVE pumpkins, so this activity is PERFECT for them!
GLITTER PUMPKINS
We actually grew these pumpkins from our garden and my children picked which ones they wanted- which was really fun.
  I got the glitter paint at JoAnn's.
Here is a link to the paint on Amazon.
I just put some of the Glitter Paint on a plate and had my kids paint the pumpkins with their hands.  
They LOVED smearing the paint everywhere!
 After they were done painting, we let the pumpkins dry overnight.
This was a SUPER cheap and FUN activity for my children!!
They LOVED it!

So cute! My kiddo would go nuts for this! I wish I could grow pumpkins but we have to many deer in the backyard. Great job!

Lovely pumpkins with the twisted stems. This looks like fun for everyone (not just kids!)

We always paint our pumpkins, too... I was just thinking of how we could spice that up a bit this year. Glitter is definitely cool!
