Halloween Activities: Painting Pumpkins

  1. Select your pumpkin with a smooth surface with no bruises, scratches, or blemishes.
  2. Clean, rinse and dry your pumpkin.
  3. Coat your pumpkin with white acrylic paint and let dry. That way the next set of colors will pop. We purchased the acrylic paints at Michael’s (remember to bring a coupon for a discount). If you have other kinds of paint at home you can test it out on a small area of the pumpkin to see if it sticks first. You can also paint the whole pumpkin with Multi-Purpose Sealer first. We didn’t do this step and so far our pumpkins has lasted for three weeks so far without a problem.
  4. After searching for ideas in Pinterest, we printed and traced our design onto the pumpkin with transfer paper using a pencil or with a permanent marker.
  5. If you want to make your design more fun you can add some glitter, decorations or embellishments accents to your pumpkin.
  6. And most important….Have fun with it and enjoy the proccess!!!
