This simple paper plate pumpkin was fun to make. To get started, all you need is…

  • Two paper plates
  • Tissue paper
  • Paint!

First we cut some eyes and a mouth out of one of the paper plates. This really is the most challenging part because you have to show the children how they can fold the plate a little bit to make a starter cut then just freehand cut eyes, mouths, and a nose.

On the other paper plate, we glued on tissue paper.

Then we added the paper plate with holes on top of the tissue paper and trimmed the edges.

Next, we painted our pumpkins. This pumpkin got painted yellow…

Then we added a stem to the top!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
