Pumpkins Unplugged!

Pumpkin1Pumpkin2Unplug your Kids is making Monday an, Unplugged Project Day. This weeks project was Painting Pumpkins. We’ve been kinda busy over here working on projects for writing and art exhibitions (a later post), but I thought we could at least draw our faces on our pumpkins before we carve them. Okay, so it’s Tuesday and not Monday, but hey, better late than never!

My kids have been into black sharpies lately, so I let them go at it. This was the end result. I can’t wait to see them carved.

Spooky Spider CookiesMaking Spider CookiesJust for fun we though we’d try to make a few goodies for a Halloween Bonfire we’re going to tommorrow night. Here’s a quick easy idea for Spooky Spider Cookies:

* Oreo Cookies (for the bodies), Shoestring Licorice (for the legs), Decorator Icing (for the eyes), & chocolate chips (for the eyes).

  1. Excellent pumpkins! I’m glad you posted, even a day late (this is supposed to be flexible and fun, so Tuesday and with markers is totally fine of course!).

    I love those spider cookies! We may have to try those, although they won’t get made before Halloween. I just put up a post about some very clever boney witch hands that a friend brought over if you need any other easy ideas.

    I hope you’ll join us next week too!

  2. They look great. I am glad that you shared them to.
