Halloween Fun: Toilet Paper Roll Pumpkin Craft

This is what my kitchen table looked like at breakfast time on Wednesday.
(the kitchen table photo... not the toilet photo!)
Yes, that cup of coffee was my breakfast.

I was cutting fabric squares and glue-gunning brown paper into little tubes
to prepare for a visit to my youngest daughter's preschool classroom.

I started my visit by telling them
this adorable Halloween Paper Story
from (one of my favorites!) Itty Bitty Love blog. (the kids and teachers loved it!)

Then we made

It is such a simple craft/activity with a
100% success rate for this group of 2.5 year olds!

To make your own, you'll need: fabric (approx. 22" x 18"),
toilet paper (can you say dollar store?), brown paper for stems
(or a stick, or a cinnamon stick), and a green pipe cleaner for a vine.

You'll get 4 pumpkins out of 1 yard of fabric (you'll cut the fabric into fourths)

Set the TP roll in the center of your fabric square, tuck and stuff the fabric into the tube.
Add a rolled paper stem, and bend a pipe cleaner as the vine.
Easy (and practical) craft.

I'll be making them again this week with the Frog Princess' first grade class
at their Fall Harvest party.
