Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Gobble, Gobble...A Pumpkin

These make a great Thanksgiving craft and decoration. It's also a great way to keep the kids busy on Thanksgiving Day while you get food ready!

For this craft you will need:
1. Wrap a brown pipe cleaner around the pom pom ball. The pom pom ball will be the head and the pipe cleaner the neck. Twist any extra around the neck part of the pipe cleaner or trim off.
2. Glue the googly eyes to the pom pom ball and set aside to dry.
3. Stick the feathers in the back of the mini pumpkin.
4. Wrap a small piece of the red pipe cleaner around the base of the head/neck for the wattle.
5. Stick the neck/head pipe cleaner in the front of the pumpkin.
