3-D Paper Pumpkins...Gobble 'Til You Wobble =)
A few more items to help with those filler lessons throughout the holiday season. How about a 3-D paper pumpkin? These are super easy to make. All you need is orange paper. Cut 5 circles out the same size. 1 circle needs to be 1/2 the size of the other 5. You can see from the visuals how this works. Fold the 5 circles in 1/2 and cut a slit in the middle. Use the smaller circle to slide the each individual circle's slit on....super easy. The kids were allowed to decorate them using other papers from the scrap box. These were the detailed pieces - like the stems, vines, leaves...etc. I have taught this lesson off and on over the past 20+ years and it is always a success because the kids want to be able to make 3D art! Enjoy! 1969
I also found this sign on Pinterest! I thought it was hilarious. The kids could have made tags and put them on the pumpkins too!
