My friends and I have a tradition we do every year. Around the first day of October we all get together and paint pumpkins!
Its a perfect way to get together and be with the ones you love, while being creative!
We painted pumpkins last night. Here is mine:

Give this a try with your friends and family. We LOVE to do this each year. What a great excuse to get together.
