I remember making these in Elementary School and thought it would be a lot of fun. They are very easy to make. You could even get creative with a Black Cat, Witch or Frankenstein head or anything you desire.
-Orange Tissue Paper
-Elmer's Glue/Crafter's Glue
-Draw a pumpkin of the piece of Construction Paper
-Cut out 2-3 inch squares out of orange (or whatever color your pumpkin will be) tissue paper
-Take your pencil, place in center of tissue paper square & pull tissue paper up around pencil, hold onto the wrap part, dip the bottom of it in the glue
-Then place dipped pencil onto your pumpkin holding it in place for a few seconds while it sticks to the paper. Slowly pull up the pencil leaving the tissue paper in place.
-Repeat until your pumpkin is fully covered (or as much as you desire)...Do not cover the eyes or mouth.
This is a fun project to do. I would recommend it to ages 4 or older though. Young toddlers it takes a little more coordination. With the holidays that are coming upon us the next three months this is a fun way to start the season. There are many fun stories you could read to your children while making the project or afterwards as they hold and adore their creation.
