My son's preschool class went to the pumpkin patch last week and we have been playing farm and pumpkin patch at home most days since. For this craft we actually used our first names but since I try to keep my kids names offline I just used our titles for the web version! 1. Gather your materials. You will need some precut pumpkin doilies ( dollar store), green and brown markers , a large sheet of white construction paper and glue. 2.Start by giving your child the markers ( paint would work too) and have them make the vines, and dirt. 3. While they do that write the names of your family on the pumpkins. 4. Add glue and have your child identify each pumpkin and add it to the paper.
