Paper bag pumpkin for Halloween

Monday, August 27th, 2007

A whole classroom could make these and then line them up along a windowsill! Try writing each child’s name on his or her pumpkin.
What You Need: paper lunch bag, orange and black tempera paints, paintbrush, rubber band, green pipe cleaner, old newspapers.

How You Make It: Paint the paper bag orange (You can just paint the front, or the whole thing). Let dry. Fill bag 2/3 full with crumpled-up newspaper. Use rubber band to close off top (Adult will probably need to help with that step). Twist green pipe cleaner around rubber band and curl ends to form stem. Decorate pumpkin with tempera paints.
