Price (not prize) Pumpkins

I am not a big lover of arts and crafts with or without the kids. I am an accountant – I don’t do creativity – paint by numbers would be my limit. Obviously, because of this, my kids ADORE anything arts and crafts – and my study has a whole cupboard allocated to craft supplies – but I try my hardest not to go into the cupboard……

‘Mummy, can we do painting?’ is surpassed in the nightmare stakes by possibly only ‘Mummy, can we get the Playdoh out?’ (My OCD can not cope with the Playdoh colours all being muddled up!!!)

Anyway, due to me and the husband gallivanting, followed by the nanny going on holiday to recover from her overtime, I haven’t been in the office much for the month of October.  So on Tuesday morning, after a dentists trip with all 4 kids (thankfully for once this went remarkably smoothly and I didn’t leave feeling the need to open gin!) I bought 4 pumpkins and left the kids in the hands of the nanny to do Halloween crafts!! With my parting comment, as I whizzed off to the office to do some work (not t*t about on social media, honestly!),

‘Could you take some photos for my blog please?’

(I think perhaps this should be added to my wonderful nanny’s job description for whenever she does arts and crafts with the kids so I can blog vicariously and look a bit more yummy mummy?!?)

So here you have it – 4 Price children and their pumpkins!

 

Thank goodness they could make the mess outside!!

The finished articles! I thought one had a hair piece (but on closer inspection it's the boy standing behind it!!)

And we also have pumpkin pie and pumpkin soup made with the insides – and happy, tired children #perfectcombo

  1. She is totally ace – I couldn’t juggle 4 kids and running our own business (and titting around on social media!) without her!!
    The pumpkins are now even more spooky as they are filled with mould – nice!
