We painted pumpkins (and just about anything else we could find) over the weekend. What an event! My niece has this crazy dual brush mixing on the surface technique and insists on wearing jewelry when she paints. My nephew is more of a performance artist while painting and twirled his pumpkins clockwise while dragging the full brush over the top. We also had banana slices that needed to be eaten, so the addition of candy corns did the trick there. My niece called them little birthday cakes.
