Place a small amount of hair gel into the ziplock bag along with a few drops of food coloring (red, yellow, orange, green) and a few pumpkin seeds (for preschool I like to add 10 seeds) then seal the ziplock bag. To ensure a good seal, you may want to tape the bag closed. Next, grab your sharpie and design a pumpkin face on the front of the ziplock bag. The final step is to let your student start mixing away by pushing the colors around. As your students mix up the colors, they can “feed” the jack-o-lantern by moving the seeds into the pumpkin's mouth.
