With Fall in the air, I finally decided it was a good time to get out last summer's dried gourds and do something with them. I got out the paints thinking that this would be a fun craft for the kids but was not expecting too much in the area of decor. I have to admit I was quite pleased with the outcome. Here's how we did it.
I gathered a number of acrylic paints in fall colors and let the kids (ages 4 and 6) each paint on their own. After painting on a solid color, they splotched on whatever accent colors they desired.
