We decided to decorate our
pumpkins we got from the pumpkin patch earlier this month for the
contest. We picked up some supplies from the dollar store. Since our
17 month old is not capable of much in terms of decorating, we bought
him a sheet of 50 Halloween stickers so that he could help put the
stickers on his pumpkin. Esmeralda loves arts and crafts so we bought
her a Halloween felt package that includes felt pieces, pom poms, and
pipe cleaners to glue onto her pumpkin.
Here is our 17 month old's pumpkin.
Esmeralda’s pumpkin turned
out to be awesome! She really enjoyed picking out the felt pieces she
wanted to use on her pumpkin with dad while Emilio was doing the
stickers on his pumpkin. When it was her turn to finally decorate her
pumpkin, she was ecstatic! She would point out where she wanted each
piece to go, dad would glue that piece, and then Esmeralda would stick
it on. Dad would help press it firmly to the pumpkin to make sure it
would stick. She is SO proud of how her pumpkin turned out that we had
to get a smiling picture of her with her finished pumpkin.
Here is how her pumpkin turned out!
