These cute pumpkins make me smile and giggle every time I walk by them in the hallway. How can you not love these!? The kids mixed red and yellow to make an orange dot on their papers. Those papers were set to dry until the next art class.
During the second art class, the students needed to cut out a mouth, teeth and eyes. I didn't tell them what they were for or how big they needed to be. Afterwards, the big reveal came when I showed them the examples and they began cutting out their pumpkin from their orange dot. They glued everything together, glued the pumpkin to a blue paper, added some blades of grass, and wha-la!
Each one of these pumpkins are so unique and special in their own way - sort of like their creator! Enjoy!
