My daughter is eyeing pumpkins everywhere we go this week.  We have already purchased a large pumpkin to carve for Halloween and a couple of small pumpkins to paint before our big night of trick or treating.  Instead of purchasing more pumpkins to add to our growing collection we had some fun making a tissue paper and styrofoam cup pumpkin kids craft. Pumpkin Kids CraftThe supplies for this project are very basic and you just might already have them at home.


  • orange tissue paper cut into squares
  • styrofoam cup
  • white glue
  • brown construction paper cut into thin strip
