Quick and Easy Halloween Humor Using Mini Pumpkins or Gourds
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 10/15/2012 - 17:18
Quick and easy peasy little way to spread Halloween fun throughout the season! Kid tested! Kids find it very entertaining to rearrange the faces every day - or every hour! As do I!
Boo! (Or as I call this arrangement - many moods of PMS)
I MUST always, always, always get my "Nightmare Before Christmas" fix every October. I get a huge kick out of the "Mayor" character in Tim Burtons much loved classic - Mr. Mayor's two political faces.
The concept inspired me to grab a few smallish gourds and baby pumpkins and draw faces - happy on one side, mean, grumpy or scary on the other. (With a nod to Jack Skellington of course!)
Depending on my mood on any given day - the arrangement of expressions changes! On a bad day - it is very satisfying to do thisÂ….
but most of the time I play around with them Â…..
and come up with a combination of funny and scary that seems to suit my mood!!
Kids totally love this idea of having a face on the front and a face on the back! And if they are old enough to draw their own - even better!
This is a set I made on baby pumpkins to set right at the front of our photo sign-in table at the Pumpkin Patch to help me engage with shy children before setting them in front of the camera.
Kids were all over the faces! And loved seeing what expression was drawn on the other side! Many got right to work assembling them into a grouping that suited them.
So I am thinking this little idea would work for everyone - from 3 to 103! All that is needed is a few small pumpkins or gourds, a Sharpie, and a sense of humor!
