Pumpkin Donuts With Sprinkles

The previous week, we painted pumpkins. I wrote about it here

It was the week before Halloween. And the teacher had stopped by to drop things off for her students before school. She wrote them notes. She left some candy. And she left behind some small pumpkins. 

One of the instructional aides and I discussed what to do with them. And that's when I remembered something I had seen when looking up design ideas for the painted pumpkins the previous week. Pumpkin donuts

I really, really wanted to paint the pumpkins like donuts. 

So, we did. 

Day one: we painted just the top to look like frosting. Then, on day two, we added sprinkles: 

I got to do a couple (for an example to the students):

So fun. 

(The instructional aide did one more pumpkin, and I have to share that as well...)

Pumpkins that look like donuts are good for Thanksgiving, right?

  2. That's a great idea, especially with the smaller, flatter pumpkins they sell now.

  3. I was expecting actual donuts that have that taste which I would not like. These pumpkins are fun and inventive.
