When Jacob turned 3, we did "pumpkin painting" at his birthday party. I spread all the kids out in the backyard on a plastic tablecloth and let them paint little pie pumpkins. Since then, it's one of my kids' favorite things to do. The best thing is that any time it rains, they get to redecorate them! :) So here they were drawing on their pumpkins with markers one day after school. It's raining today, so I'm sure tomorrow there will be NEW decorations on them!
