Pumpkin Painting

Another fun Open Ended Art project. This week was Pumpkins. Yep, anything goes as long as it's related to pumpkins.  We had a couple small pumpkins from our visit to the patch.  We decided to paint one! Turbo loved the idea and worked with great focus and interest in the project.

I realized up until now, we've done all of our painting on objects made for painting - paper, craft items etc. I can't remember having him paint something not made for paint.  Open Ended Art has helped me think outside the box with our art. Go visit Mommies Wise Little Bookworms and get inspired too!

What a fun project. We also painted pumpkins last week, and I was amazed how long my daughter stayed on the task - she is never as interested in regular painting. Turbo did a super job with his pumpkin
