I'm not a huge fan of carving pumpkins(read that as i'm too lazy) so we paint ours instead. It's also much more toddler friendly as they can do it with no help.
I got some delivered with last weeks food shopping and Seb was so excited to see them and even more excited when he got to paint them!
He painted them, left then to dry and then covered with glitter paint and let that dry and finally painted glow in the dark paint on them. Unfortunately my camera refuses to take a photo of them glowing so you'll have to trust me on that one!
I'm hoping they'll hold up well enough to be put out on the door step on Halloween.
