My kids just made the cutest pumpkins!
First they painted the background paper purple.
While this was drying I gave them a piece of gold coloured paper that they covered with overlapping strips of yellow and orange tissue paper. I drew a pumpkin shape on the back and they cut them out.
As you can see, these were then glued to the purple paper, a green paper stem was added, as were facial features. For the eyes, they had a choice between purple buttons, foam geometric shapes, or googly eyes.
I got this great idea from That Artist Woman. I LOVE her blog!!
And these beauties were done by the kindies across the hall from me. Beautiful, hey?
