Pumpkin Pie Paint


The kids loved painting with pumpkin pie paint. It was basically orange, yellow, and brown tempera paint with a mixture of pumpkin pie spice mixed in (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger). We smelled each spice as we added it to the paint and the room was filled with a beautiful fall-inspired aroma.








As a side note, I used a hair dryer to dry these faster and to diffuse the smell, and it worked for both purposes.  We got to hang them up immediately.

Thank you for the comments! Always appreciated : )

We'll just skip circle time today.

This morning, I thought the kids and I would go outside a little extra early, enjoy the nice cool weather, do the art project I had planned ...
