I never thought we would be Angry Birds fans, but it has happened. Big brother found the App on my phone a couple weeks ago and got us addicted to it! Since he likes Angry Birds so much, I thought it would be a fun Sunday craft activity to paint our mini pumpkins to look like Angry Birds characters. Big brother was pretty excited about it 🙂
We started painting the pumpkins at 7:00 am (while we were still in our jammies!). We used acrylic paint which coated the pumpkins well. Only a couple needed two coats.
To make the faces, I printed out pictures of each bird from Google images and used those as a guide. I cut and traced most of the parts onto craft foam that I found at the Dollar Store. The beaks, eyes, and borders were drawn on with a black sharpie. Then the faces were glued onto the pumpkins with a hot glue gun.
We think these little Angry Birds pumpkins turned out pretty darn cute! Big brother says they all are his favorite 🙂
Amy of Creative Kids Snacks suggested making a Caillou pumpkin! I thought it was such a fabulous idea that we used our extra pumpkins for exactly that! So here is our Caillou and Gilbert pumpkins 🙂
