Pumpkins: Mama's got a brand new (paper)bag

My boys like crafts insofar as they enjoy the sensation of squeezing paint through their fingers and seeing how many times they can cover their shirts with stamp prints before I stop them. This project managed to hold Tater's attention for a little while.

chenille rods (green)

Fill paper bags with newspaper to create a rounded form. Twist the top to form a stem. Paint the the bag orange on the bottom and the stem brown. Let dry. Tie a green chenille rod around the base of the pumpkin stem for a vine.

You could also make an apple for a back to school project.
