  • 1.

    Use Crayola® Crayons to color the tops of paper lunch bags green or brown for pumpkin stems. Color the rest of the bags in pumpkin colors (oranges, browns, yellows, and greens). For a textured effect, remove the paper crayon wrappers. Place bags on top of textured surfaces and rub with the side of the crayon. Layer colors for a deep pumpkin look.

  • 2.

    Open up your colored bags and fill with lightly crumpled recycled newspaper. Twist tops closed at the stem bottoms.

    If you wish, make eyes, a nose, and a mouth for Halloween jack-o'-lanterns. Cut facial features from construction paper or white paper colored with dark crayons. Glue in place with Crayola School Glue.
