Directions:
Lay the largest piece(s) of foam decoration you are using on the canvas, placing where you would like it to be. 
Trace it lightly with a pencil, then remove it.
Dip the child’s finger or thumb into the paint and help place it where you desire, applying pressure and helping to roll the thumb.
When the paint is dry use the brush to draw the stem and leaves, making the child’s first initial, or even the name, as part of the stem. 
You can see in these pumpkins’ there is an “R”.

Draw faces on the pumpkins with the black paint and brush.
