Our family started a new tradition for the month of October, called 'The thirty-one days of Halloween
'. The link takes you to the site where I got the idea, and hopefully one year I'll be able to document the entire month and make an Instructable for it.
For now, I am posting one of the days we tried this kid-friendly craft (think age four (4) and up) and created these pumpkins with crayons melted on them.
I got the idea from this blog post
. The author used larger pumpkins, but I changed it up a bit and learned a few lessons to make this craft in the future even better.
You can tell by the photos that we used all kinds of colors. That's what kids do and I love it. I made a black & purple one, but it didn't come out as well as the colored ones to me.
I hope you experiment with crayons melted on pumpkins and show me what you made!
