Our Little Pumpkin Patch
We made these squatty little pumpkins this morning in our preschool co-op.
To make these little fellows, paint the bottom two-thirds of a small brown lunch bag orange. In order to make the paint spread quickly, I watered down my paint and used a wide-tipped sponge brush. Let paint dry.
Stuff paper bag with paper or recycled plastic bags. Twist the bag closed to make the stem. Secure it with a green pipe cleaner. Curl the pipe cleaner by rolling the ends around a pencil.
If you want to make jack-o-lanterns, have your kids paint or color faces onto their pumpkins before stuffing their bags.
