~ Goofy Pumpkin Faces ~
These really are the goofiest, most fun pumpkins. My kids loved making them.
|After they painted their pumpkins they used an old comb to give it some extra texture and/or pumpkin grooves.|
|Princess K adding designs in her pumpkin.|
|Next, they were given blue & yellow paint to make a green stem.|
|The final step was to cut face features out of white & black paper and glue them on the pumpkin.|
Each kid made 2 pumpkins. Arent' they super fun!
~ Tissue Paper Pumpkin ~This is a super simple pumpkin to craft.
|I cut strips of red, orange & yellow tissue paper.|
|The kids then glued the strips on to paper. It was interesting to see that my boys both put their tissue paper on in a mangled format with no rhyme or reason & Princess K applied her tissue strips only in one direction.|
|When they were finished gluing on the tissue paper, the boys cut out the pumpkins. A few tissue pieces required a bit more glue after that. Then they used the leftover green paper they had painted from the previous pumpkin craft to cut out a stem.|

~ Crayon Resist Pumpkins ~
|I'm not sure why he needed to draw such an evil jack-o-lantern, but Mr. T had a great time creating this guy.|
|Capt. N made his jack-o-lantern on orange paper using a green crayon.|
|Next, they mixed colors & painted their jack-o-lanterns.|
~ Princess K's Pumpkins ~
Princess K decorated a couple other pumpkins, too.
|I cut out the pieces, she glued them on. Simple, cute & enjoyable.|
|She used the paint daubers to decorate 2 of her pumpkins.|
