For our story we read It's Pumpkin Time by Zoe Hall and Shari Halpern. This simple story chronicles the growth of a pumpkin. The simple, bold illustrations inspired our project this week.
We copied the style of the illustrator to make these pumpkin vine mobiles.
We began by tracing pumpkin shapes on white construction paper. We used the medium sized pumpkin from Preschool Express' pumpkin patterns.
The girls painted the pumpkins orange.
I love the different colors of the pumpkins!
To make the vine, the girls painted a paper plate green and then added a little yellow paint. They also cut out and painted leaves.
We cut the plate into a spiral.
