A safe alternative to creating a Jack-O-Lantern is to pick a pumpkin and paint it. There are no sharp knives involved so no kiddos cut themselves, plus the pumpkins will last longer and won’t turn into the sad, smelly, fly attracting gourd they would if carved.
Brookshire’s in Quinlan will be hosting a “Paint a Pumpkin” event Saturday October 17th from 2 pm until 7 pm. You can paint your pumpkin or they can pain tit for you. This is fun for the whole family. Price is $5.00 for 1 pumpkin and paint and they will provide aprons to wear.
If you go and participate, take lots of pictures and send them to us and we will add them to the Halloween Gallery we are creating and announcing soon.
