|PAINTED and STAMPED PUMPKINS|
It's going to be a chilly, rainy weekend here on the East Coast, so here are a few ideas to get your family involved in a
fun HALLOWEEN craft party!
If you don't carve all of your pumpkins, you may even keep them around as decorations through Fall and for your Thanksgiving dinner table.
An "uncarved" pumpkin can last up to a few months. Make sure you choose a very solid pumpkin with no signs of decay or bug holes. Also get one with the stem firmly attached. Keep out of extreme temperatures and sunlight.

Simply spray paint your pumpkin and glue jewels onto the pumpkin! Get into it and use your favorite colors. Jewels, beads and even fancy thumbtacks can be fun and cheap too!

This, OBVIOUSLY is a carved pumpkin, BUT I LOVE CATS and just couldn't resist adding this sweet face into the mix. I am DEFINITELY going to make these! One for each of my 3 sweet kitties.
This is fun for the kids!
Have them flip through magazines for facial features,
even pets would be adorable.
The kids can make pumpkin faces that look like themselves or you!
Make one pumpkin for each member of your family.
Don't forget to take pictures of each of you holding your special
pumpkin "mini Me!"
DON'T FORGET THE GOOGLY EYES!
Using white school glue or "MODGE PODGE" and wrap your pumpkin with tissue paper . When it's dry, you can paint he tissue with white craft paint. Add GOOGLY EYES and you have "MUMMY PUMPKIN!"
