BAG OF BONES LET KIDS PRINT THESE LOOT BAGS READY FOR THE BIG NIGHT
Large potato Knife Paper towel Felt-tip pen Sheet of A4 paper Scissors Small cotton bag Fabric paint Paper plate Iron
1 Cut a potato in half lengthways, then blot one half dry with the paper towel. Draw a spooky shape with a felt-tip pen, then carefully score around the pen lines with the knife. Cut around the sides of the potato and remove the unwanted parts of the potato, leaving a raised design for printing.
2 Cut a piece of paper to fit inside the bag. Lay the bag flat on a work surface so that it’s ready for printing.
3 Pour paint onto a paper plate, and dab the potato into the paint. Stamp on one side of the bag; leave to dry. Turn the bag over and print the other side.
4 Remove the paper from inside the bag; iron over.
STYLE IT UP INSTEAD OF CARVING THEM, GIVE PUMPKINS A GLAM MAKE-OVER WITH PAINT AND GLITTER
Pumpkins Acrylic paints Paintbrush Glitter Masking tape Pencil
1 Paint the pumpkins in different patterns with bright acrylic paints. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle some glitter over the top.
2 For a stripy pumpkin, stick some strips of masking tape onto the sides of the pumpkin, then paint the untaped sections in black. Allow to dry, then remove the tape. Add fine brush strokes of blue and pink paint on the painted sections, and paint the stalk.
3 For a spotty pumpkin, first paint half of the pumpkin with two coats of white paint and leave to dry. Then, dab the end of a pencil in pink paint and stamp onto the white to create a spotty pattern.
