Pumpkin Treat Bag

Pumpkin Treat Bag

Posted 2013-10-25 by Oxford Explorerfollow
A simple paper plate is ideal for painting as a pumpkin and you can go one step further and make it into a treat bag for Halloween.

Ready for treats


Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Medium

Materials
  • 2 paper plates
  • Orange paint
  • Black paper (or a marker)
  • String
  • Some treats

  • Method
  • Place the two paper plates together and draw a curve at the top, as in the picture below.



  • Cut along the line and discard the tops.



  • Separate the paper plates, turn them over and paint the backs orange.




  • Once they're dry, join them together with glue around the edges or staple them together. Don't glue the top curve as this will be the opening for the bag.
  • Cut out eyes, a nose and a mouth from black paper and stick on the pumpkin.



  • Punch holes in the top corners, thread through string at each end and tie to make a handle.



  • The pocket formed between the two paper plates makes a great little bag for collecting Halloween goodies.
