Seed Art (via Parents.com): To make dye, mix white vinegar, food coloring, and water (experiment with the amounts of each to suit your child's desired look). Place pumpkin seeds and popcorn kernels in the dye. Let them soak 4-6 hours before straining and drying overnight. Let your kids have fun sorting and organizing the seeds into imaginative shapes and gluing them onto paper, foam, or canvas.

Oh. How. Cute! These would make for great ornaments too, we have one from my husband's great aunt. She made it back in the 70s & it's still one of his fave ornaments.
Cover microwave popcorn package with paper to look like snowman, tie a knit glove (from the Dollar Spot at Target?) on top to look like a hat, and package two together (of course!) as a gift for a babysitter, neighborhood kids, etc.
All you need is dried pumpkin seeds, food coloring, and vinegar. Place 1/4 to 1/2 cup water in small cups. Add a TBS of vinegar, and several drops of food coloring to the cups. Allow the dried seeds to soak in the colored water for 2 to 4 hours, then remove them from the water & allow them to dry over night.
Your child can transform a photograph into an all-natural work of art. 1. Take a full-body photo of your child in front of a fairly plain background. 2. Print out the photo as large as you can. Ours is 8 1/2 by 11 inches. 3. With your child, collect natural items from your yard, such as bark, leaves, twigs, and flowers. 4. Arrange the objects on the photo. There's no need to glue them. 5. Take a photo of the new, collaged image and frame it.
