Did you know that if you mix shaving cream with Elmer's glue and a bit of paint you can make a work of art that dries puffy? Oh the possibilities... The picture here doesn't do this project justice. The pumpkin is puffed up to over an inch high! Here's a template to make either a horizontal or vertical pumpkin. Simply follow the directions to create something amazing! Your kiddos will love doing this craftivity.
This is a quick, easy and fun craft that even young children can do. Children trace the pumpkin template on a sheet of newspaper and color it with an orange marker or crayon. Students find and cut out shapes to make a pumpkin face, as well as letters that spell their name. These will be used for the pumpkin's smile. They can also search for all of the letter Pps on their pumpkin and circle them. This packet will be FREE for an entire year, after which time it will be revamped and put in my TpT shop. Pumpkins in the News.
