Pumpkin Craft: Design a Jack-O-Lantern Cut and Paste Shape Craft

Pumpkin Craft: This simple, one-page printable black and white pumpkin craft lets students design their own jack-o-lanterns. To design the jack-o-lantern, the students color the pumpkin. Then they choose from circles, ovals, triangles, and diamond, and crescent shape to make the face.

Next they cut and paste the face. Then they color around the edges of the shapes to create their very own jack-o-lantern. This craft is a perfect math connection when you are studying pumpkins. Enjoy!

For a science pumpkin connection, be sure to check out my life cycle of a pumpkin 3D craftivity {HERE}.

Fall Life Cycle of an Apple Craft for Fall Activities

It's apple season, and it is the best time of the year to teach about apples. In fact, just last week I got to visit an orchard and sample many varieties of apples. I was quite fond of the honey crisp apple. You can bring apples into your classroom this fall with my 3D apple craft. This apple craftivity looks great and is simple for students to make. This is a super fall apple activity for children.

The best part is that they are learning about the life cycle of an apple as they create it. My apple is red, but go ahead and add a bit of variety of your own and print the apple patterns on red, yellow, and light green paper. Perhaps your students could pick the color of their favorite type of apple.

Thanks for taking a look and happy apple picking!

Oh, did I mention that they also had caramel apple cookies in the bakery at the apple orchard too. Now that's what I need a recipe for!

Weather Crafts for Preschoolers -- a rainbow and cloud craft for weather themes

I'm super excited about this weather craft for preschoolers. It's perfect for kindergarten, first, and second grade science activities too. Add a rainbow craft to your next weather lesson or weather unit.

 This simple craft lets young students cut and paste and color. Students will cut out the sun, paste the sun rays, glue cotton balls to the cloud (you will need 14 cotton balls for each student or you can use a dauber or bingo marker), and color the colors of the rainbow.

This is great for working with learning colors too. (This craft uses purple instead of indigo and violet since those colors are not in the 8 pack of crayons.) This weather craft makes a great bulletin boards too so be sure to display them. You can find it in my teaching resource store {HERE}.

I want to add a little update. Check out what the students of a teacher friend created in their class this week.

Life Cycle Bulletin Board

Teaching your students about life cycles can and should be fun! And what a better way to share all that learning fun than to make a life cycle bulletin board for your classroom. I wanted to share this fabulous teacher-created bulletin board that pulls together the chicken life cycle, frog life cycle, ladybug life cycle,  butterfly life cycle and more.

This clever teacher used my 3-D Life Cycle craftivities {Here} to create this bulletin board gem and came up with a clever heading: It's a Wonderful Life ... Cycle.  I love how the ladybug life cycle is in the grass and the sunflower life cycle is there too. We've got the turtle life cycle and the chicken life cycle and even the butterfly life cycle. Then, she added the water life cycle with the clouds at the top. I love teachers. We are one creative group.
