This pumpkin project was so easy and fun for the kids. The kids painted the pumpkins with acrylic paint. I sketched the design with chalk and they attached the push-pins.
I baked a lot of cookies (homemade cat-shaped sugar cookies recipe here, monster eye cookies recipe here, and a cookie cake recipe here that was a big hit). I made a few changes to the cookie cake recipe. I followed the advice in some of the comments and added less salt, more vanilla, used wax paper to roll it flat in the pizza pan and left an inch gap. I also added m&ms as well as chocolate chips.
More fun decorating. The boys really liked the plates, draped furniture and crooked frames.
The wreath I made and pumpkin my daughter decorated.
Witches Brew table with an encyclopedia book made to look like a “spell” book.
The Jessica Rabbit costume I made from an oversized dress found at a consignment store.
