5 Little Pumpkins Halloween Craft

Five Little Pumpkins has always been one of my favorite Halloween books. I love crafts that coincide with books because it makes the experience a lot more fun. For this craft, I had all the supplies already at home, but if you don’t, no worries I’ve included links for everything for easy shopping on Amazon.  The boys had so much fun with this craft, despite the look on Tucker’s face.

Now for the fun! Mikey chose a dark blue sheet of paper for his background and Tucker chose black.  I had already cut out the pumpkins, ghost, and moon for each of the boys since Mikey is just starting to learn to use scissors and Tucker I don’t trust with them one bit.  We have been working on Mikey’s gross motor skills and using scissors is a great way to practice.  He cut all of the grass for both his and Tucker’s artwork.

I helped the boys with their popsicle fences since I used the tacky glue to get them to stick better.  I let them have free range with gluing their pumpkins, ghost, and moon on their paper. Mikey decided he wanted to try to draw faces on his pumpkins to make them look more like the pumpkins from the book, and he insisted I help him with that.  Tucker, on the other hand, didn’t want anything drawn on his pumpkins.

I think they turned out pretty cute.
