This is the last kid focused project on my list. If your anything like me you'd rather paint your decorate your pumpkins, and not carve them. I loved the whole carved pumpkin thing, I just hate the mess and the fact that the neighbor kids usually smash them...which results in 2 very sad little boys! So last year we started painting them and only displaying them in our backyard to keep them safe. This project is perfect for your little ones. And they can even keep their little spider pumpkin in their rooms to add a little Halloween flair. Since I couldn't get the source to work again I will tell you what you need to do.
You will need small mini-pumpkins, black acrylic paint, foam brushes, black pipe-cleaners, white felt, and glue that holds well. First start by painting the entire pumpkin black. Then create the eyes for the spider by cutting 2 small white circles and gluing them onto the pumpkin, then take the end of your paint brush stick and dip it in the black acrylic paint to dab on the black eye dot in the center of the white felt circle. Then create a white felt mouth and glue it on. Take your pipe-cleaners and help bend them into spider legs, and then glue them on. Let let the glue dry.
