We got out the orange tempera paint and started painting...
...very, very slowly. If your kiddo is like mine, this might take quite awhile. He really just is NOT that interested in painting yet!
In the end I painted the entire page orange for him and then let him go back and dab and paint over the top. I'm pretty patient when it comes to my kids' art and expression, but this was taking forrr-evvv-errr, and Simon was already declaring "all done," and trying to put the lid back on the paint container. Sometimes it's okay for Mom to help out, right?
We let the paint dry and then peeled off the green tape.
Cut the paper into a pumpkin shape and use the green painter's tape to add a stem. Easy peasy!
