Paper Mache Jack O Lanterns

Our attempt at Paper Mache...
We started with balloons, flour, water, craft glue, newspaper and a variety of orange paints.

My 5 year old was in charge of all the gross stuff - mixing and dipping the newpaper in the flour mixture.
We hung them on the clothesline.  It was a breezy, sunny day so it didn't take long to dry.

Then the fun part - popping the balloon!
Both of the boys had a blast painting...
Final product.  I think they did a pretty good job.  They kinda of look like the vintage paper mache candy containers.  All I can say is they had a lot of fun.
