Paperbag pumpkins- stuff a paper lunch bag with newspaper, leave enough space at the top to twist the top of the bag into a stem. tie it with rafia or string. Paint the bottom orange, paint the stem green or leave brown. Draw on a face.
Marble painting- Materials- plastic tray with an edge, several marbles, tempera paint watered down & put in shallow plastic cups, bookmarkers cut from cardstock with a hole punched at the top, ribbon (and optional beads). I had 3 or 4 trays & divided the kids in groups. we worked over a large bo. The kids put a bookmarker in the tray, take a marble from whatever color of paint they want, and put it on the tray, then roll it back and forth on the book marker to paint it. They can take another marble from another color of paint, etc., When they are done painting, they loop a ribbon through the whole at the top of the bookmarker, and if you bring beads, they can decorate the ribbon with beads.
