This is a great Halloween activity for preschool children. Teachers can plan a day to talk about how pumpkins go from a seed into a magnificient orange fruit. Yes, a pumpkin is a fruit because it comes from a flower. Paint your paper bags with orange paints, then decorate it with stickers and other Halloween pumpkin decorations. No gooey mess with this pumpkin craft project for the kids in your home or class!

Instructions To Make A Pumpkin Paper Bag :
1. Rip your newspaper into strips, then crumple them up. Little kids will enjoy this paper!
2. Fill your lunch bag with the cruppled up strips of newspaper until your bag starts looking bulgy like a pumpkin.
3. Twist the top of the bag around to make your pumpkin stem.
4. Paint the bottom half of the bag orange to make it more like a pumpkin.
5. Use a pattern or draw your own leaves onto green construction paper. Use a marker to outline the leaves and bring out the veins in your pumpkin leaves.
6. String two leaves through a green pipecleaner. Then wrap the pipe cleaner around your pumpkin stem. Wrap your pipe cleaner stem around pensil to make it coil.
7. Cut out three triangles and a mouth from black construction paper. Then glue or tape them to your pumpkin to turn it into a paper bag jack o lantern.
