We made paper plate pumpkin pies in preschool

in Creative Art, Paper Plate Pumpkin Pies

Today, our whole classroom smelled like pumpkin spice as the children made their own paper plate “pumpkin pies!” It was wonderful…

The children started by painting their white paper plates with orange paint.  I mixed a little glue in the paint to make it a little sticky but not much glue really…

After the children painted on the orange paint, then they sprinkled some pumpkin spice on their paint…

I didn’t limit how much pumpkin spice they could use – I bought plenty so they could have some fun with it.  Some of the children sprinkled on just a little and decided they were done but others really went to town and added a lot of pumpkin spice…

We made apple pies last year using red paint and cinnamon (thanks to Kristin over at Preschool Daze) so this year, I thought it would be fun to change it up and make pumpkin pies instead…

It made our room smell delicious!

A great idea for Thanksgiving week and a theme about family traditions.

Yes – this could be adapted in many ways and for lots of occasions!

Hmmm wonder about adding crushed graham cracker to it too… for the “crust”….

Hi Deborah,

Love getting these great ideas each morning before I head off to school!
Great add-ons for the pumpkin pie are brown construction paper strips to glue “lattice” on top of the pie – then add a few marshmallows (white cotton balls or pompoms!) YUM! Looks good enough to eat!

i bet this smells yummy!! i love projects that employ the use of multiple senses… i think it just helps to get them further into the activity!

11 Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. October 19, 2011 at 2:54 pm

I love adding other senses too!

Thanks for sharing your pumpkin pies over at our link up. :) I totally have a kid at my house who would be dumping the entire container of cinnamon on top! Such a fun process! Thanks again!
