Halloween Kids Kraft

It's that time (soon) again!  I love Halloween!
And I love volunteering to help with class holiday parties at my girls' school.
Last year for my 1st grader's Halloween party we made these:

Cute tissue paper art! 

I was thinking of tissue paper art 'old school style' where a small square-ish piece of tissue paper is wrapped around the eraser end of a pencil and then glued down, but my friend told me about how you can just 'crinkle' the tissue and then adhere. And it works great!

Bring one already completed to show the kids
what they will be creating! 

1. Cut out several (one for each child) black foam board pieces with an x acto knife and use a hole punch to make a hole for the yarn-loop tie. 

2. Draw a pumpkin shape with a stem on card stock/paper, but only trace the pumpkin shape (not stem) onto the black foam board with a white crayon. 

3. Cut lots and lots of orange tissue paper as well as a good amount of   black tissue paper in small pieces .

4. Gather small flat or semi-flat pieces of bark to glue on as the stem.

5. Remember to have the children write their names on the back with white crayon before beginning the glueing of crinkled paper and bark.

And here is my cute daughter's project! Yeah... looks like she started to write her name on front... haha :)
