Pumpkin Face Game

I needed a pumpkin face game for this weekend's party, since my son is bent on carving a pumpkin.  He is 4.  So I figured I'd put together this cute little guy for the little ones.  It's a lot safer and less messy than handing them carving tools or paint.

     Orange and blue tempera paint
     Black foam board
     Orange glitter
     Metallic Marker
     Print out of something fun to say ("Spooktastic!" in Spinstee font)
     Vinyl sheet

I used orange tempera paint to free hand a pumpkin onto black foam board.  Then I traced the word spooktastic! onto the board with a pen to make a mark, then filled it in with a metallic gold pen:

Then I drew some eyes and mouths on the back side of the vinyl paper and cut them out.

While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some orange glitter onto it and mixed a little blue tempera paint with the orange one to make brown for the stem and ridges.

Super fun and super easy!  Go make one.  :)

Achei super criativo. As crianças vão adorar.
Eu adoro as cores do Halloween. O laranja sob o preto dá um bom destaque.
