My girls and I went to an arts and crafts store last weekend and had the best time decorating pumpkins! Instead of carving real pumpkins, we painted craft pumpkins. These craft pumpkins are a great idea because they look real, but won’t rot on the front step!
While we were there, we also got some great painted pumpkin ideas!

However, my girls decided to come up with their own ideas on how to paint their pumpkins. I do admire their creativity! My older daughter was inspired by the Wizard of Oz and painted this “flying monkey pumpkin.”
While my middle daughter painted her pumpkin to look like a ghost.
