..with a fun art crafts twist!
So, how exactly did I put this simple pumpkin craft together?
Here are the steps I took to put this paper pumpkin activity together:
Cut out a big circular orange shape out of construction paper.
Then, cut out two triangles and a pumpkin mouth out of black construction paper (Making sure that they are small enough to fit on the orange piece.)
Add the pieces onto a cardboard cutout or poster board.
Then, use a hot glue gun (adult-use only) to attach the dried pasta onto the cardboard cutout and around the orange pumpkin.
Tip: Separate them apart so that your LO is able to insert a shoe lace through the pasta easily.
Then, wait until the glue is fully dry to inster the shoelaces through the pasta. 🙂

A couple of different early learning approaches you can bring forth to this activity are to count each pasta as you insert the shoelace.
You can also talk about the colors orange and black.
Talk about the shapes of the eyes..
Say something like, “The shapes of the eyes are triangles.”
You can also practice tying the shoelace once they come around to the top of the “stem”.
This is a wonderful way of approaching this fine motor arts and craft with an early learning twist!
