I had some leftover canned pumpkin in the fridge and my vision was to use that pumpkin to "paint" the letter P.
|We started by putting the "P" printout on a cookie sheet and then covered it with plastic wrap. Abby is pretty curious at this point.|
We got out the pumpkin and started making some observations...
And tasting. That would be the appropriate face after tasting pumpkin. It's amazing what some sugar and spices can do to that stuff.
When the observations were complete, we started our "painting."
|I had envisioned that we would paint on the pumpkin in the shape of the P. It was hard to get it to spread, even with the plastic wrap. We decided to take the plastic wrap off to see if it would work better.|
|Our end products. Not quite what I had pictured, but fun nonetheless. Abby's was more the idea of what I was going for...painting INSIDE the P outline...but she did have a bit of help from me.|
Pumpkin probably works better in baked goods than for painting, but I still think we would do this again.
