After browsing all the stalls we headed to the downtown shopping area for some lunch. On the way to the pub we passed a couple of stores with Halloween displays and granddaughter Betty loves all things Halloween.
One of the stores was a children’s craft store, Petraglyph, where there is a variety of ceramics ready to paint. We tried to steer Betty towards a small pumpkin, but she was having none of it and chose the biggest one they had. I could see this was going to be a joint childs/adult activity.We rounded up all the supplies necessary to paint this humungous pumpkin, found an empty table and got stuck in. We spent a relaxing hour personalizing the pumpkin to Betty’s satisfaction. I thought she might get a little upset when we had to leave it there to be “fired” and “glazed”, but she took it in stride.
What do you think of the finished product?
