Preschool: Pumpkins!

Here are a few pumpkin activities! 

What is inside a pumpkin?
I did this 2 different ways... first I stapled 2 paper plates together front to front. Staple a stem cut from brown paper to the top of one of the plates. Paint the paper plate with orange paint, mixed with a tad of glue and some pumpkin pie spice. When they are dry, open the "pumpkin" up and glue white yarn (pumpkin pulp) and dried pumpkin seeds inside. 

We also did this by cutting pumpkin shapes out of orange paper and gluing the insides on to it.

We also explored the inside of a real pumpkin! Dig, scrape and smoosh!  So much fun! 

We also did a pumpkin patch group project. I set out paper plates with orange paint and different size cups to dip in the paint. They stamped the 'pumpkins' onto the freezer paper. After they dried, we connected them with finger paint 'vines'.
