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.
