Most days lately, Eugene excitedly runs to the doors that open to the art/activity supply storage extravaganza and yells, "MAKE, MAKE!!" until I agree that it is indeed time for a creative activity. He also happens to be obsessed with pumpkins currently. Almost every day he insists that we make or draw something pumpkin-y. Today we made these clay pumpkins. Eugene helped by rolling the clay into pumpkin shapes and coloring a few of them orange with oil pastels. Eugene helped me find a little stick from outside and then helped paint it white. After the stick was dry, I simply broke it into a bunch of tiny pieces which became the stems for the pumpkins. This is an easy, fun, fall activity to do with or without kids. Enjoy!
