The bonus is that you probably have everything you need in your craft box already. If you don’t, the supplies needed are very reasonably priced and you’ll be able to use them again on other crafts. 

Swapping out the pumpkin for any shape you want makes this an all-year round DiY craft. 

Try it with a flower template or find a character they love to sketch round to use as a template.  The possibilities are endless!

The kids will be honing their fine motor skills with pencil control and practicing their cutting out skills. It’s also a great craft to boost their self esteem. They’ll be very proud of what they’ve achieved.

The family will enjoy a crafting session together and it’s a great way to encourage them to read 🙂
