Halloween started early this year for some youngsters at Scheels in Minot.
The sporting goods store offered free pumpkin painting for families Thursday night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The kiddos showed off their artistic skills by painting faces on their pumpkins, some scary, and others funny.
“I've painted a pumpkin on a pumpkin, emojis, Frankenstein, a ghost, and a cat,” said Autumn Davidson.
“An eyeball and two kitties and emojis and a vampire cat,” said Annika Davidson, when asked what she painted.
“I painted an eyeball and a cat. I like that it gets messy and that it's colorful,” said Gabrielle Morales.
The Minot Area Council of the Arts helped to put on the event.
And, yes, the kids got to take their pumpkins home.
