What You Need:

  • Pumpkin, or squash
  • Tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child to name as many different types of line patterns as she can. Some examples are: zigzags, diagonals, chevron stripes, stripes, wavy lines, crisscrosses and diamonds.
  2. Have her choose a pattern for her pumpkin.
  3. Ask her which size brush would work the best as a continuous pattern over the whole pumpkin.
  4. Have her start from the top down, repeating her pattern until it covers the entire surface of the squash.
  5. Allow the paint to dry completely.
  6. Place on a table, or on the front doorstep to welcome autumn!
