I know it isn't even October yet, but Halloween has been in full swing around here since the end of August. I have been doing Halloween crafts twice a week over on Spoonful, so there have been been pumpkins and spiders and wiggly eyes taking over the dining/crafting table all month long. I had a mini pie pumpkin sitting on the table when Milo asked me if we could paint it to look like an Angry Bird. Brilliant! Everyone decided which character they would like to make, and I put down the base coats using acrylic craft paint. It took many, many coats of paint to get a nice, solid color. Then, the boys painted on their characters' faces and Steve and I made a few, too.
