Creating the Pumpkin Shakers

Start by having your kiddos collage the outside of the paper bowls with the squares of orange tissue paper. We suggest putting craft glue into shallow bowls, having students use a paint brush to brush a thin layer of glue over the paper bowls, and then lay the pieces of tissue paper over the wet glue.

Once dry, have students cut two stems from green construction paper, gluing a stem on each of their collaged 'pumpkins'.

Finally, invite students to add a handful of pumpkin seeds to one of the bowls, then staple the second bowl over top and - voila!
