recycled pumpkin craft for kids

reuse- recycle pumpkin

need-
newspaper
tape
stick
black paint
orange paint (or food coloring)
paper towels
water/glue mix (add about a half bottle of glue and little bit of water to make it less sticky)

First using the newspaper make a ball. We did this by using one piece, making a ball then using the next and wrapping that around the first till the paper was gone.
Then tap the paper so that it stays in a ball shape.
Once done rip pieces of paper towels into strips, and dip them in the water/glue mix and place around the ball till it is fully covered.
note- I did not have orange paint so thinking ahead I mixed some red and yellow food coloring in the glue/water mix to make orange. If you have paint though and would rather paint dont worrie about that.

Once the ball is covered let it dry. It might take over night.

Once dry (if you did not use the food coloring to color the "pumpkin" orange) you can now paint it orange and add the face. 

To finish add a hole to the top (this was a adult job i nmy house sense my daughter is only 3) and palce a stick in for the stem.Then DONE!! 

you now have ur own recycle pumpkin!
