We tried to make a paper pumpkin today, an everlasting memory, they were tricky to make for under 6, but the older ones enjoyed it.

You will need:-

1 sheet orange paper

1 sheet green paper

1 sheet of black paper

scissors

stapler.

Instructions

*. Fold an A4 piece of paper in half, then in half again, and in half again, until you have 8 folds.

*. Open up the paper and cut along the folds so you have 8 strips

*  then loop 1 stop of orange paper, then make another loop on top, then another loop on top, using all 8 strips.  I found that stapling the loops after 4 strips top and bottom, helped keep it in shape.

*  add on some green leaves and face, then maybe use a pipe cleaner as the stem.

* your own everlasting little pumpkin!!
