After cutting our pumpkins open, I asked the Man of the House to carve a couple of stamps for us, on the fleshy side of the lids.
He made one a simple circle, to be painted with washable orange paint, for pumpkins, and one, a stem, to be painted with green paint.
The girls happily stamped away, on the paper side of pieces of butcher's paper.
Then, the older girls brushed on some vines, and leaves.
I was thinking they would make some sort of pumpkin patch mural, but the girls decided to make fall themed, pumpkin wrapping paper, instead. With my birthday coming up in a couple of weeks (the big 4-0), I really can't complain.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
