First we got online and found these awesome Bat O’lanterns at Family Fun. We all loved them. So after a quick drive to town, we were back home with ten small fake assorted gourd-like shapes, some acrylic paint, and brushes. Then, as is the rule in our house when using paint, the boys stripped down to their skivvies.
The boys decided they didn’t just want bats, but also ghosts and zombies. So we painted the pumpkins black, white and green
Except my tw0-year old who painted his body and face
It was super cute. So glad I have this picture to remember it.
While that dried, we watched some Halloween cartoons and ate cookies, then we painted on the faces
A quick application of glitter Mod Podge, and the ghouly gourds are now drying while the boys sleep
Tomorrow afternoon we’ve decided we want to string them all together to make a garland. Though my new camera should be here in time to get a pic of the final product, I’d like to think things are going to go down pretty much like this
