My brother paints a pumpkin blue and green. He did decently for a three year old.

Carving pumpkins? A new activity you can do change up your October is paint a pumpkin. Painted pumpkins look equally as nice on your doorstep as carved ones.

You will need:

  • Paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Markers/ Sharpies (optional)
  • Everything you need to paint (paint cup, and other things you have)
  • Glitter glue/Glitter (optional)
  • Trash bag, newspaper or something to protect your surface from paint
  • A paper plate to put your paint on

To start, lay your newspaper or trash bag on a flat surface. Fill your cup with water ¾ of the way. Take your “pallet” (paper plate), and put your paint on it. Next, put your pumpkin on the bag, and decorate it with your paint and markers. Make sure to clean your paintbrush when you are transitioning colors, if you have different colors. If you are using paint and markers, MAKE SURE TO LET THE PAINT DRY. I accidently forgot to do that and had to repaint my pumpkin in that spot.

Once the pumpkin dries, it will become a pineapple. I used a brown marker to make the pineapple lines.

Since some people don’t celebrate Halloween, this is a fun thing to do, because it doesn’t have to be a Halloween activity. The activity is for all ages, seeing that my three year old brother painted his own pumpkin. 

I think that this is a really entertaining activity that definitely cured my boredom-itis. Since some people don’t celebrate Halloween, this is a fun thing to do, because it doesn’t have to be a Halloween thing. A really cool thing that you can do is use painters tape (my other article on painters tape) on the pumpkins. Another really fun thing you can do is add paper to your pumpkin, like how I did with the yellow pumpkin, which is supposed to be a pineapple.
