*We made these last fall but I never shared them so I thought now would be the perfect time*
Our church has a pumpkin patch each fall and we usually buy a few pumpkins. This year the pumpkins were outrageously priced (apparently collection plates come in orange now) so we walked around until we found some gourds which were only $5. We chose 3 gourds and brought them home to paint.
We used regular acrylic paint and had a lot of fun one afternoon painting the gourds.
Here’s my witch – Gourdita!
My 5 year olds – a little freestyle action going on here
But my favorite is what my 9 year old saw in this gourd…
A snake slithering up to a freaked out pumpkin!
I simply love this. And my kid. What a funny guy he is.
Grab a few gourds this month and let your kids go crazy.
It will be so fun to see what they “see.”
