I got the idea to do this activity from a college friends blog Painting Pumpkins- Life of Gehrke's. I really have to give her all the credit. I worked with what I had. I could not find a small plain yogurt so we used vanilla. I added two drops of food coloring in each which worked really well. I used pink and blue to hopefully make purple. She said on her blog that the pumpkin dries with more color so we are waiting for ours to dry. What a great idea! Here are more pictures of our pumpkin painting.
