If there is one thing in the world that my toddler loves it is glitter projects. Combining glitter projects with Halloween? Even better. He's had a real love of Halloween ever since he got a full-size Twix bar while trick-or-treating around the neighborhood last year. Favorite holiday spot sealed. It's been almost a whole year (which is like eons in toddler time) and he still talks about that big huuuuge candy bar.
But aside from the candy aspect, he's just really into Halloween. He likes helping me out with all the fall baking. He loves reading his collection of Halloween books. He's over the moon about going back to the pumpkin patch again this weekend. And currently, we can't get through a grocery trip without him reaching out of the cart to grab little pumpkins to take home.
We've been coloring pumpkins with markers, but yesterday we decided to do glitter pumpkins and this craft was most definitely a winner. We simply applied a little craft glue with an old paintbrush and used some little glitter shakers to decorate. We rolled the pumpkins around in the extra glitter, and patted a little more on with the paintbrush (because there is no such thing as too much glitter).
It was tons of fun and I picked up a few extra mini pumpkins at Trader Joe's last night so we could make even more glitter pumpkins today. It's such a simple, fun craft I have a feeling it's going to become a Halloween tradition. xoxo
