Here's a very simple Halloween art project that you can do with your preschool children or the kindergarten crowd. The tiny tots don't have a big attention span so it would be great to pre-cut everything ahead of time.
Orange Foam or Construction Paper
Black Foam or Construction Paper
Green Foam or Construction Paper
Use a dinner plate and trace a round circle on the orange foam/construction paper. Now take your black foam/construction paper and cut 3 triangle shapes for the eyes,nose and whatever shape you prefer for the mouth. It can be a half circle or more triangular like the smile in this picture. It's entirely up to you. Make it your "own"pumpkin.
Five Little Pumpkins
Reviewed on Amazon--"Dan Yaccarino captures the essence of Halloween with simple, yet expressive pictures of pumpkins, ghosts and a black cat. My one year old son Ryan loves it when i read the story of the Five Little Pumpkins. He points to all the different pumpkin faces and loves their orange glow. The book wipes clean and withstands being dragged all over the house! I am a big fan of Dan Yaccarino's work, love his cartoon Oswald, so this book is a big Halloween fun delight!"
