Make a Mini Pumpkin


Give each child two cups cut from a cardboard egg carton. Help children glue the cups together to form a mini pumpkin. (One cup sits flat; flip the other cup over and lay the open end of the cup atop the open end of the other cup; then glue.) Children can paint their pumpkins orange and let them dry. Poke a small hole in the top of each pumpkin and insert a piece of green pipe cleaner. Let children add faces and give names to their pumpkins.
