What You Do:

  1. Ask your child to use a ruler to outline 14 strips, each 1.5" wide, on the orange construction paper.
  2. Have her cut the strips out, making sure that each strip is as straight as possible.
  3. Have her cut out one more strip of green paper.
  4. Ask her to bend them to create loops and then tape them in place.
  5. Encourage her to assemble the orange loops into the shape of a pumpkin on top of a sheet of black paper. When she's happy with the arrangement, she can carefully glue the edges and set them in place.
  6. Let her glue the final green loop in place to give the pumpkin a leaf.
