Mini Pumpkin Fun

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Those little bags of tiny pumpkins are so darling, aren’t they? Of course just grabbing a sack and using them as decorations is one way to go, but I wanted to allow my big kid to do some fall activities with them.

First we gave the pumpkins a bath. He likes playing car wash, and spraying things in the tub with a water gun. When our baby wash pump bottles get low, we refill with water and this is what he uses to wash his toys. Armed with a nail scrubbing brush he went to work getting all the dirt off his pumpkins he could. It entertained him for a good while.

Once the pumpkins were squeaky clean and dry, we painted them with Tempera paint. A word about tempera paint- it will wash off. We set ours outside and the recent rains completely washed them off. But that allowed us the opportunity to do it all over again! Acrylic paint is a more permanent option.

There is a reason we use Tempera paints at our house. We are MESSY.

A bag of pumpkins is roughly $4 at Walmart, and we got five pumpkins in our bag. For anyone looking to do a fun fall activity without spending much money this is perfect! Large pumpkins can add up quickly, and are cumbersome for little people. These are perfect for little hands to play with.
