- Orange and brown construction paper
- Hole punch
- Black Marker
- Orange yarn
For this activity we cut an identical pumpkin shape onto two pieces of orange construction paper. Then we used the hole punch to punch holes along the outside of the paper. Attach a long piece of yarn to the paper using tape and then have the children lace the pumpkin using an “over and under” method.
After they lace about half way, have them stop and crump a few pieces of newspaper (or old scholastic book orders) into the pumpkin. Once it’s stuffed, have them lace the rest of their pumpkin. When they are finished have them draw a jack-o-lantern face into their pumpkin and attach a stem!
