Today was Fall at the library's kids' craft time. They provided the kids with paper cut outs of turkeys and pumpkins, paper plates, markers, and a stapler. We made a turkey from tracing around my son's hand. Then he stapled the pumpkins and turkeys to the paper plate. So that we could hang it up, I stapled a pipe cleaner to the back.
This is a cute little idea for a place settings. Its a paper pumpkin. Cut out 8 circles, all the same size, out of orange paper. Fold 7 of them in half and cut a slit in the center, leaving a quarter of an inch uncut. While it is still folded in half, punch a hole on one side near the folded edge. Next put the folded circles around the uncut circle via the cut slits. Then string the punched holes together with a pipe cleaner. I used a marker to curl the pipe cleaner to make it look like a stem / vine. I want to make more of these but out of painted food boxes.
