First, grab two paper plates and add a small amount of one, two, or even three colors (think pumpkin colors – orange, yellow, green) to the bottom of one of the plates. Then take the bottom of the other plate and press them together, pressing the paint onto both plates. Put your student’s hands (one on each side) on the center of the paper plates and move them in opposite directions “twisting” the plates back and forth against each other. This process will mix the paints and create a blended look for your pumpkin. 

Once your student has created the color and has covered the area, they are content with, let the plate dry before drawing or gluing on a stem. Once the stem has been added, cut around the center of the plate to make a round pumpkin shape. Use these pumpkins as part of a bulletin board, craft, or as a decoration around the house.  

Be creative and think of all the fall items you could have your students create using this method. Paper plate twist apples, pumpkins, and more! The sky is the limit!
