If we haven’t already established this….I LOVE FALL!!! One of my absolute favorite Fall Meals is Dinner in a pumpkin! Its fun, its simple, its delicious, nutritious and…what better way to Trick Your Picky Eater than by eating dinner straight out of a pumpkin!? I know, isn’t it great!?

I make this dinner every single year on Halloween night and my family LOVES it! I am sure you are going to love it to! And those picky little eaters will gobble it right up!

The greatest thing bout this meal is, you can prepare it in advance! Halloween night gets NUTS! The costumes, the parties, the trick or treating…NUTS I tell you! SO, if you make this the night before, refrigerate it and stick it in the oven about 2-2.5 hours before dinner…voila! You got yourself a delicious meal without the craziness of prepping it on Halloween Night! Wahoo.

As an Early Childhood Special Educator, I get asked quite frequently about color blindness. Often parents are concerned about color blindness because of a child being slightly delayed in learning colors. Color blindness is not as common at it may seem. However, studies show that approximately 1 child in each classroom has color blindness.

So, lets talk a little more about color blindness. What is a person actually seeing when they are color blind? Black and White???? No, it is VERY rare for someone to have “Monochromasy Color blindness” or complete lack of any color sensation. Most of the time, it is a weakened sensation of a certain color a certain color group. Actually, there are few different types of color blindness. To find out more about the types of color blindness and the prevalence check out this Website for complete details.

Shiny paint…what is shiny paint? Um it’s the easiest paint to make and it gives such a fun twist to your kids paint! It leave the paint looking shiny or wet! But, it is dry!! Fun right!?!

So here is what you will need:

  • Non-toxic Child safe Paint
  • Lite Corn Syrup

And that is IT! Yes, two ingredients!

How to do it:

Combine equal parts corn syrup and paint in a small bowl.  (I like to add a little extra corn syrup to mines a little more shiny).Stir until well combined. Your paint will be more fluid and runny. But that’s how you want it! If you want your paint to be a little more shiny, add more corn syrup! But, be aware that if you add too much corn syrup you will end up with a sticky picture in the end!
