Paper Bag Pumpkin Project

aaaAutumn Arts N’ Crafts

Here’s a super easy project to do with any toddler or preschooler to use as a decoration for Halloween or Thanksgiving. You can purchase the supplies for this project by clicking the links below or by visiting my storefront by clicking here.

You Will Need:

Large Lunch Paper Bags
Washable Orange and Brown Paint
Paint Brushes
Green Ribbon

What to Do:

1. Simply have the kids paint a large brown lunch bag with orange paint.

2. Allow them to paint the top 3-inches of the bag with dark brown paint. Kids can mix red and yellow paint to make orange paint. They can also mix orange and black paint to make brown paint.

3. Let the kids crumble up a few pieces of newspaper. After the paint on the paper bag is dry, stuff the paper bag with scrunched up newspaper and shape the bottom to make a circle or pumpkin shape.

4. Twist the top of the paper bag to create a stem and use green ribbon to tie it shut.
