Construction Paper Pumpkins Craft For Kids


We made construction paper pumpkins for this week's tot school craft. Initially, I was striving to hit my overachiever goal by making painted kitty pumpkins with Luke, but life happened. And oftentimes sticking to simple crafts is easier anyway. Why over-complicate things, right?

These construction paper pumpkins are a great autumn or Halloween craft for little and big kids. They only require a handful of items that are most likely on hand at home. Here are the incredibly easy directions...


Supplies:

Orange and green construction paper
Stapler
Scissors
Tape
Pencil


Directions:

1. Fold your orange paper in half, hamburger style. (Is that what they still call it? I am trying to recall my first grade arts and crafts lingo!) Cut it in half, and then cut eight strips on each, for a total of 16 strips. This will make you two pumpkins per one piece of paper.

2. Line the strips up in a symmetrical asterisk shape and staple them together in the middle.


3. Flip up the pieces and staple them together at the top to make a pumpkin shape. It helps to staple about 2-3 strips at a time.



4. Cut a 1x2 inch piece of green paper for the stem and two, 1/4 inch green pieces of paper the entire length of the construction paper for the vines.



5. Wrap the long pieces around a pencil to make curly vines, and then staple the stem and vines to the top of your pumpkin.


I am beginning to think I was a kindergarten teacher in my previous life. That, or it's in my future. Have fun making these construction paper pumpkins with your kids for an easy and fun Halloween craft!
