I love this time of the year! Fall is so fun with the leaves changing colors, the pumpkins, the cardigans. It’s actually been a tad bit warm for fall around here, but we’ve not let that get in the way of our fun. We had some friends over for a marshmallow roast and pumpkin painting party and the girls had a blast!
I’ve never hosted a marshmallow roast before! We didn’t have a fire pit until this summer, so there was never a spot to roast. So I had a lot of fun getting this together. I picked up two kinds of marshmallows (regular and chocolate), and two choices for a base (cookies or graham crackers), and four options for fillers (peanut butter cups, chocolate, peppermint patties and caramels).
The popular choices were the cookies and the peanut butter cups! The caramels were a bust! The cooler air made them firm up so they didn’t quite work out.
The girls also had a blast painting pumpkins!
I put out a bunch of acrylic paints, foam brushes and paper plates and everyone picked their colors and got painting. Cupcake wrote her name and painted a smiley face on her pumpkin.
Pumpkin was all about covering her whole pumpkin in purple. Check out that seriousness!
The fire was still roaring as it got dark and we hung out around the pit and Cupcake told scary stories. More marshmallows were roasted, s’mores made. The girls stayed up way past their bedtime! And thankfully we all slept in the next morning.
If you’re looking for an idea for some fall fun, bust out the marshmallows and have a delicious time!
