We made paper plate pumpkins in preschool

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!
