Pumpkin decorating

In October, Layla's preschool had an all school field trip to a pumpkin patch. I took Layla and Malakai on the field trip and they had a blast. The very next day, we went back and took Sanaa since she also wanted to go to the pumpkin patch but had been in school. The kids picked out a small pumpkin and they decided they wanted to paint them. .

The first two pictures are Sanaa's finished pumpkin.

Layla also painted circles for eyes and then painted the back white.

Malakai painted a very abstract pumpkin. He had a lot of fun mixing colors.

Then a week or so after we went to the pumpkin patch, all the kids at church were given pumpkins and stickers to decorate their pumpkins. Layla choose to put the stickers on the van window and carve her pumpkin. She really enjoyed scooping everything out of her pumpkin.

Sanaa and Malakai chose to use the stickers to decorate their pumpkins.

Sanaa made it a point at church to pick the least perfect pumpkin. Her pumpkin had a crooked stem and was lop-sided, yet she proudly showed everyone as we left church and told them that she had the perfect pumpkin!

Nate helped Malakai with his pumpkin. Malakai pointed out where he wanted the stickers to go and had Nate put them on the pumpkin for him. We now have 6 pumpkins around the house for decorations this year!
