So I *might* be a bit obsessed with the mini pumpkins I bought last week. Ok, I totally am. But after the diamante decorations I did myself I thought it would be fun to let my toddler in on the action. He loved it before when we used lots of different materials to paint with (the glee of something other than a paintbrush!) so I thought he would enjoy painting on a different kind of surface. I think that pumpkin painting for toddlers can be a bit tricky as pumpkins are so bright so we used white pumpkins to make it easier to see what my toddler had painted!
So today was the day I mentally planned to do some kind of diamante pumpkin thing and while my son was at playgroup I got busy. And you know what? It was not good. Too much faff. So I started again. Kept it simple. And I’m much happier with the results.
