Happy Halloween

My son came this past week with an adorable pumpkin he painted at daycare, but they had used the wrong kind of paint and it was flaking off … everywhere. “Fix it, Mama!” he begged me.

We peeled off what was left of the paint, applied a coat of water-based primer followed by two coats of the only black paint I had: chalkboard paint. Now he can decorate his pumpkin all by himself (no knives required) and change his pumpkin’s expression whenever he wants.
