A night of decorating....

Pumpkins!

A very easy way to keep a very active 3yo busy.
Well at least for 10 minutes.

What do you need, you say?

Get yourself one of these:

Scored that bad boy @ Aldi's for $3.99.
Hello, total spave.

Then head to the Dollar Tree & pick up some googly eyes.
$1 for 125 eyes.
While a bargain I regretted my decision when I realized I had to individually attached glue dots to each one.
Someone wasn't very appreciative of my slow yet consistent effort.

Then let 3 yo place googley eyes where his little heart desires.

And you get The Great Googley Moogley Pumpkin!

Looks good doesn't it.

The whole thing was like $5 + change out of pocket.

Total spave.
Total fun!

How are you decorating your pumpkins this year?

Late!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! We have an annual pumpkin decorating party at my house every year.

I've been trying to figure out an idea for my 3.5 year old for decorating her pumpkin. Last year we let her scribble all over it with erasable markers. Yea, the marker never dried. Never.

When I first read that you got googly eyes, I thought cute idea, but messy with the glue involved. But you used glue dots! Super idea!

I'm totally stealing this idea for her. She will love it!

Thanks again!
