Adaptions 4 Kidz Junior loves glitter, its messy, sparkly, and fun to feel, so that makes it perfect as far as Junior is concerned.A few years ago we tried glittering our pumpkin and since then Junior has to have a glitter pumpkin every fall. We can have others decorated differently but we still have to have one covered in glitter. Be warned this is one messy activity but still lots of fun and you end up with a very sparkly pumpkin(probably also a sparkly kid, carpet, chair, table, etc. ) To start you need a pumpkin(preferably one with a stem, we learned that the hard way yesterday), glue, a small dish, paint brush, and glitter. The pumpkin Junior decorated yesterday only had glitter on it. Typically we use puff paint and write his name on it first( or some little design). Place your pumpkin on a sheet of paper to keep the glitter mess to a minimum. Then start spreading on the glue. Then start sprinkling on the glitter. Let it dry and then glitter the rest of it.

In the past, I have worked during the summer as a skilled need provider and respite provider to students with a special needs. I even held a day camp with art activities for special needs students.
