kids frankie pumpkin

This project is intended for kids ages 6+. Create your very own version of a Frankenstein (or any monster) pumpkin. Some paint, craft fur, wiggle eyes and paint pens transform an ordinary pumpkin into a crazy (or scary) character!
Step 1

Paint the pumpkin green. Let dry and add additional coats until you are happy with the coverage. Let each coat dry in between the next coat.

Step 2

Cut the craft fur into a "crazy hair" shape. Turn it over so the back side is facing up.

Step 3

ADULT: Hot glue a piece of chenille pipe cleaner to each side of the hair to help it stand up once attached to the pumpkin. Now, hot glue the piece of craft fur/hair to the top, front of the pumpkin.

Step 4

ADULT: Hot glue two large wiggle eyes to your pumpkin monster’s face.

Step 5

Cut a rectangular strip of craft fur to make one long "eyebrow".

Step 6

ADULT: Hot glue the eyebrow above the eyes.

Step 7

Decorate the rest of the monster's face using the black and white paint pens.
