This porcupine pumpkin is a good project to keep kids working together as group. They can take turn to place the toothpicks into the pumpkin.
What you need: Oblong pumpkins with a short stem, lots of toothpicks, paints
Steps to create it:
Use craft paint to paint the pumpkin dirt brown color. Color a lighter shade of earth brown color around the stem to frame the face. Use black or dark brown paint to paint the eyes.
In a plastic cup, pour out some brown paint. Dip the toothpicks halfway to the brown paint. Let them dry.
In another plastic cup, pour out some white paint. Dip the unpainted halves of the toothpicks to the white paint to create half-brown, half-white toothpicks.
Once the painted pumpkin & toothpicks are dry, start inserting the brown ends of the toothpicks into the pumpkin, front to back.
