Perfect Pumpkin

What You Need:

  • Construction paper (orange, green and black)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

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 them cut the strips out, making sure that each strip is as straight as possible.
  3. Then, have them cut out one more strip of green paper.
  4. Ask your child to bend them to create loops and then tape them in place.
  5. Encourage them to assemble the orange loops into the shape of a pumpkin on top of a sheet of black paper. When they're happy with the arrangement, they can carefully glue the edges and set them in place.
  6. Let your child glue the final green loop in place to give the pumpkin a leaf.
