Directions:

1. Begin by painting the wooden wheelbarrow brown.

3. While paint is drying mix together one cup of salt, one cup of flour and a half a cup of water with the wooden spoon in the mixing bowl.

4. If the dough is too wet to handle like clay add more flour.

5. Now shape the dough into various sized pumpkins, small enough to fit inside the wooden wheelbarrow.
