Last minute pumpkin idea and Week 42!

If you're like some of us--- ahem, ahem... and have about three or four pumpkins but only manage to carve one, here's last minute idea for your pumpkin that is tons of fun for the kids and a great way to use up those broken crayons.... anyone with kids under 5 have lots of those.

So basically all you do is gather up those crayons.

Remove the paper around them-- this part is the toughest-- those buggers are hard to come off!

Glue them (I used a glue gun)... mix and match however you want. (sidenote, keep out of toddler's hands. some toddlers (mine included) might try to pull every crayon off and then chew them).

Very important, cover the area with a newspaper or plastic tablecloth (get it from the dollar store as you'll want to toss it after)

Use a hair dryer to melt the crayons.... feel free to chat with your kid about the wonders of science and why some things melt with heat.

And there you go

And now for Week 42 and some pics!

Day #292
Anjali and I had lunch with our sweet friends Dani and Raven. We also met little Wren, Raven's newborn sister. Here is Anjali drinking out of a borrowed sippy cup of Raven's. Minutes after, Raven borrowed it back and drank some. #sippysisters.

In the evening, we went to Milestones for a meal and a martini for mama.

Day #293
Some Saturday mornings, we have dance parties in our house. 

Day #294
Shopping with ma' peeps. 

Day #295
Notice anything odd in this pic? 

Yep, my daughter has remarkably large feet! #daddysshoes

Sometimes sweet A is not so sweet after all!

Day #297
Happy Divali!!

DAy #298
I realised that A's hair-- though finally long (this baby was born almost bald) was shaping up to be a mohawk. Off to the hairdresser's.

Happy Tuesday and Happy Halloween Eve!

Linking up with Annie and Nat for Thoughts on Thursday.

  3. Great idea! We are back at square one for pumpkin carving because we did ours a little too early and it's already rotted. So we'll be carving pumpkins tonight!

  4. Great pumpkin ideas, quite different from regular, yearly pumpkin decor, A's haircut looks really full and cute.
