Stuffed Pumpkins

Good morning!
So far most the projects I have been showing for Halloween have been for adults only. I decided it was time for little miss to get her turn making a Halloween craft. She already claims that she made the ghosts that hang in our front entry. Uh huh....Sure Toots. This is really fun and easy for kids to do and you may just have everything in your house for it. Just how kid's crafts should be.

You will need:
1 brown paper lunch bag (or white. I don't even know how we happened to have one)
Orange, Black, Green paints and a paintbrush. (Note. I tried using watercolor paints first, and it doesn't show up very well. So use either tempera paint or acrylic)
Newspaper or a thin paper magazine that you don't want anymore
Rubber band

1. Crumple all the newspaper and stuff it into your paper bag so that it gets full and round like a pumpkin. Kids will love doing this part too. When it is as full as you want it, wrap the rubber band around the top and form the top to look like a pumpkin stem.

2. Get out the paints and let them go wild painting their pumpkin orange and then painting a jack-o-lantern face.

Princess's pumpkin ended up looking a little like a spooky tree.
Momma had to do one too!
3. Let dry.

Now you have a sweet little kids decoration for the kitchen table, the playroom or your child's bedroom. Your little one can show off his/her artwork with pride.

Enjoy and happy weekend!
