Let the kids have some fun with this great idea for a Chalkboard Pumpkin. Now that is endless hours of pumpkin decorating fun for everyone!

What you will need:

  • Pumpkin
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Chalk
  • Newspaper

Directions:

  1. In a well ventilated area, lay down newspaper or some other type of ground covering. You may want to place rocks on it to hold it down.
  2. Place your pumpkin on the paper and paint the areas you can reach with chalk paint.
  3. Allow the pumpkin to dry for 1 – 2 hours. Then roll the pumpkin on its side so you can paint the areas you missed.
  4. Allow it to dry for another 1 – 2 hours. Then touch up any areas as needed with more chalk paint.
  5. Allow to dry overnight. Then write or draw on it with chalk.
  6. You can “erase” your pumpkin with a damp cloth.

The pumpkin is even black for a spooky Halloween Look! Have Fun!
