Painting Pumpkins and Spin Art


We enjoyed a Children's Night at our church last week. What a fun time.
We also stole an idea from Sara's Art House--the kids loved this. Ours came out a little different...but that's OK.




Oh yes, that white blob in the middle down there...is actually one of the girls' sweater which was on the back of a chair, but my baby decided to turn it into a football and threw it right on a big blob of paint and got it all colorful! So, I had to wash and add some soap and leave it for her mommy in a plastic baggy to take home to wash and try to get the paint out!

Of course, my son actually make's a pumpkin with directions for carving RIGHT on the pumpkin! Yes, it says where to carve with arrows and everything. Wonder where he gets that from?

OK, I LOVE your pumpkins so much better than ours!!!!! I was too scared to add other colors- but what a colorful, cute idea!

And the polka dot pumpkins are fabulous.

Can I maybe steal one of these pics to put on my blog to show how cute the different colors can be?? And link back to you?
