The Great Pumpkins

    Give my grandchildren colored cups, plates, and napkins and a snack of, let's say, 'homemade peanut butter and crackers' and you have a party. Notice I wrote "homemade". Can you believe it? The reason is because you can buy them already made. How convenient! I guarantee though, not as much fun.
    My daughter had bought pumpkins from the local farmers market and the children had purchased some at school. 


 I use a soapy water and a heaping 2 or 3 capfuls of  "Chlorox Bleach".  There is quite a bit of dry soil, bacteria, and a host of other field germs on the pumpkins. YOUR PUMPKINS WILL ALSO LAST LONGER!

No instructions are necessary. Just give them the paint, brushes, a cup of water for rinsing brushes, with a few paper towels and watch the fun! If you use acrylic paint as I do, don't forget the aprons or old clothes. 
I had received special requests. Can you guess?

In case you need help: we have Spiderman, Dora, and TweetyBird!

  The back of Doras head!

Big Day!
No one wanted to stop and eat!
Or remove the pumpkins from the table!

Thanks for stopping by!
