How We Decorate Pumpkins
This year, I had a pumpkin decoration plan. We’d paint a few early, then carve the rest on Halloween.
Silly me. Anytime I try to dictate my kids’ creativity, it backfires.
They wanted to stab their pumpkins, dig their hands in squishy guts, and slather their wounded gourds in red paint.
I resisted. They persisted. I relented.
And you know what? Their approach blew mine away. Ideas bounced around the room, followed by giggles.
We even named a creation after Pablo Picasso and discussed his controversial influence on art.
Here are a few of their masterpieces:
Thank you, my little dudes, for reminding me that our best moments are unplanned.
This year, screw Pinterest and let your kiddos take over pumpkin decorating!
