Pumpkin or Vegetable Painting

A Family Fun Painting Activity

Pumpkin Painting or Vegetable Painting

This is another inexpensive craft activity that really has the "FUN FACTOR"!

Painting Halloween pumpkins is so much easier than carving and can involve the whole family - children have a great time designing and painting their own vegetable masterpieces!

Vegetables placed outside can be painted with Patio Paint - a range of outdoor craft paints that is weather resistant, scuff resistant, durable, permanent and non-toxic.  The paint has excellent adhesion qualities and is easy-to-apply.  Alternatively, a good acrylic paint like Americana or Crafter's Acrylics will work.
