Who needs paintbrushes when you've got gourds?
Art Project: Painting with Pumpkins
a variety of mini-pumpkins and other winter squash
cardboard or heavy paper
Five little pumpkins /
What Kids Do:
--I had originally intended to give them all three primary colors to work with, but in the end, I'm glad I stuck with just red and yellow. It reinforces the concept that those two colors make orange, plus all the resulting shades are just so lovely and autumnal!
--This was a quick project for every class session. Most kids only engaged with the project for a short period of time before they were ready to go wash their hands. But that didn't necessarily mean they didn't enjoy the project, just that it didn't take long to fill up that piece of cardboard with such a big "brush"!
