Easy Pumpkin Craft

Calling all crafty parents!  What is your favorite pumpkin craft?  I’m so curious to see what other people do with their pumpkins (assume you buy one for fall).  Carve it?  Paint it?  Decorate it?  Roast seeds?  Eat it?

B enjoyed picking out his own pumpkin, carrying it home (in the stroller), and decorating it.  First he painted it and then he cut paper shapes and glued them on.  B assured me that what you see below is the pumpkin’s face.  He can describe exactly where the mouth and eyes are, although you might not see it.  Then he added some frizzy “hair.”  Daddy mistook the hair for leaves but B confirmed that it was the pumpkin’s hair – NOT leaves.

Do you have a favorite fall craft for the kids?

Here is a link to the YouTube video of our pumpkin craft:  Pumpkin painting.  SUPER EASY!

Crafty Moms – Nursery Ideas

I’m always amazed when I hear about what other moms are up to!  There are some seriously crafty, creative women out there.  They are hard at work maintaining the “fort”!  I always think of them as pioneers – navigating new landscapes and settling new territories.  Building homes…

Check out this mom’s remodeling work for her kids’ room and nursery.  I love the colors and the hardwood flooring!  Beautiful!

Have you remodeled or redecorated your kids’ rooms?  What about the nursery?
