Ideas: Pumpkin Painting & S'mores Party

My daughter met her BFF & boyfriend at the age of 3 months old.
This trio have been absolutely inseparable ever since.
Luckily their parents and siblings are awesome so it's an all around good time!

Since they don't get to see each other as often, we plan monthly play dates.
These play dates are usually the kids making a mess of the house and us drinking an alcoholic beverage.
To keep the destruction to a minimum, we like to be prepared with activities.

This month was my turn to host.
I decided to be festive and fun all while remaining on a budget.
We had a pumpkin painting and s'mores party.
It's the perfect time to display their artwork and to sit around a fire.
The kids had an absolute blast and we kept our budget!

The first step was to gather all the things we would need.
I got a few tubes of Crayola project paint, paint brushes, pumpkin stickers, and stencils.
For the s'mores all we needed was graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows, and firewood.
To stay festive we made Pilsbury pumpkin sugar cookies and got some spooky rings!

Unfortunately, it rained and we couldn't use the fire pit for the S'mores.
My phone was listening and randomly suggested a recipe to make s'more in the oven.  Creepy much?
If it didn't rain, we would have sat around the fire, making s'mores, and telling spooky stories!

To ease the disappointment, we jumped right into pumpkin painting.
We also ordered a pizza, because pizza fixes everything!
To start we protected my table with oversized, heavy duty garbage bags.
We then gave the children choices of stickers, stencils, and paint to begin their craft.

My daughter used the bat sticker and painted flowers all around the pumpkin.
Her friends used spookier stickers and chose red glittery paint to represent blood.
My son just decided to eat the blue paint.  See what happens without s'mores?!

Our babies big kids had an absolute blast.
They told spooky stories, ate way too many carbs, and made pumpkin masterpieces.
Does Crayola paint count as a carb?  I hope not...
It was a complete success and cost under $35!

What festive activities have you done this season?


  1. How positively fun! I don't think I could stand a house full of kids in any number :)

    1. It was very cute. Could you take it if it meant s’mores? Yum!

  2. Great the kiddos had fun indeed. The bat wings are a nice touch. I think he's safe with the carbs on the crayola paint lol blah.

  3. What a fun time! You're such a great mom (and host!).

    Yes, creepy that your phone was like, "Hey, how about some oven s'mores instead?" :)


    1. ugh yesssss... it listens to everything! I remember when I first started blogging back in 2011, I didn't even have internet on my phone. I actually refused to have it. Now it's a necessity!

  4. It sounds like you had a great day planned out, even with the rain. We usually pop s'mores in the microwave when it's icky out. This is the first year that I haven't planned out anything for fall. I'm still debating on if I want to host Friendsgiving this year. It's been a rough year and I'm just tired, I'd rather just take it easy through the holidays.

  5. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
    (1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (9) If you want to stop your divorce.
    (10 If you want to divorce your husband.
    (11) If you want your wishes to be granted.
