Want to share the joy and magic of jack-o-lanterns with a toddler? No need for knives. Just put some paper on the kitchen floor, strip your little one down to a diaper, and put some non-toxic paint on the paper. Finger paint your pumpkin!
Bee really enjoyed this. I helped her make a face, and she went free form for the rest. As she painted and laughed, I told her why we make jack-o-lanterns: to light the way for our visiting ancestors, to scare away naughty spirits, and to have a good time!
