Glittered Pumpkins

After choosing pumpkins from the Pumpkin Patch, Bria informed me this year she wanted to put glitter on her pumpkins.  That sounded quite a bit easier then our Melted Crayon Pumpkins from last year, so I was all for it!   All the kids chose some glitter while we were out shopping.  Unfortunately we somehow lost Eli's once we were home, so his pumpkin had to wait a bit. For the girls, I mixed some Elmer's glue and water just like I did for the Frosted Gourds, and turned them loose with paintbrushes and glitter.

Skippyjon Jones was very interested in the whole process and ended up a little glittered himself.

After buying more glitter for Eli's pumpkin (I can't believe we still can't find it), I glittered his.  I would have let him help, but I remember him swimming in it with our Cloud Sensory Bin!

Here they all are!

The glittered ones do look pretty!
