Painting Away the Pain

The last few weeks have been a smidge wild in our home. We’ve had back-to-back to back colds, long work days, a week of yucky weather, and general “unfun.” This week, I decided to change up our evening outside activity…and busted out all the paints.


I love seeing our daughter express her creativity. She loves all things bright, can sit and color for multiple hours in a row, and asks to “make art” daily. This particular activity was the perfect way to spend time outside and paint something a little…different…than our usual!




  • A few pumpkins of varied sizes
  • Paint brushes
  • Acrylic paint
  • Bags or newspaper (to protect the surface on which you’re painting)


What are some of your favorite Halloween-themed activities?


Happy weekend,
