Season’s Eatings… I mean Greetings! But seriously, what’s better than this time of year full of family, food, and food-themed crafts, such as this Paper Plate Pumpkin Pie?!? It’s the perfect activity and decoration for your Thanksgiving feast!
Not only are these pie slices super cute decorations that could be used for a banner, or name place cards, they are a great way to practice those fine motor skills with your little one. With this project, your preschooler will cut, paint, fold, and glue!
Not to mention, crafting is always a good time to connect and talk with your kids. About anything, nothing important, or the meaning of Thanksgiving and what it means to your family.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Cut paper plate in to slices.
2. Paint slice(s) orange. Let dry.
3. Cut a 1″ strip from brown construction paper.
4. Accordion fold brown strip.
5. Glue folded brown construction paper to edge of slice to create crust. Refer to photo for placement. Trim excess.
6. Glue cotton ball on orange section to create whipped topping. Let dry.
