isn't she sweet? pumpkin decorating, farmers market style! we hit up our favorite market this morning with friends, and were able to squeeze ourselves into the kiddie crafting booth amongst lots of school-aged kids (more field trips to the market!). vendors had donated all kinds of fruits and veggies, and each child was able to pick a small pumpkin and decorate it. lucy was up to the task, hudson was pleased as punch to crawl around on the ground, searching out dropped food.
alright, as you can probably tell, i helped lucy LOTS with this craft since we were short on time and the booth was crowded. hudson was making a break for it while lucy was still trying her darndest to push the first toothpick into her pumpkin--that part proved pretty difficult for a 2.5 year old. she was, however, into the creative part, and insisted that her pumpkin needed a tail (a radish and a long lettuce leaf).
too fun. and so easy to just keep a few fruit & veggie pieces on hand for a quick decorating session here and there, don't you think?
