Easy I Am Thankful Pumpkin Craft

Easy I am Thankful Pumpkin Craft!

 Found this on Pinterest and wanted to share it with Halloween and Thanksgiving coming up.  We have so much to be thankful for.  This is a GREAT way to give kids an opportunity to count their blessings 🙂  Plus, an easy craft is always a bonus in my book!

 

Materials Needed:
*orange and green construction paper
*staples or brads
*scissors

Directions:
Step #1
Cut out 8 pieces of orange contraction paper into 1 inch strips.  You will also need to cut out 2 leaves and 2 skinny strips of green contraction paper for the vines.
Step #2
Have children write something they are thankful for on each strip of orange construction paper.  Be sure to leave about a 1 inch space on the sides of the strip so the writing isn’t covered up when stapled together.

Step #3
Use a stapler or brads to attach the orange strips at the top and then at the bottom to form a pumpkin.

Step #4
Add your leaves and green vines.  I rolled up the green construction in a paper to help curl the vines.

Super easy…super cute…and SO much to be thankful for!

  1. What a great craft. I think I could do this with my nearly adult 17 year old grandson for the Thanksgiving table. Thanks, Pat
