This is a fun fall activity for students. Students begin by making a fall pumpkin using beads and pipe cleaners then they write about it. This is a very simple craft that only requires pipe cleaners and beads.
Begin by folding a green pipe cleaner in half. Twist the bend to make the top of the pumpkin. Then put orange beads on the pipe cleaner, leaving enough to twist the ends together. Shape the pipe cleaner into a pumpkin.
Students are then instructed to write the directions for making this craft using the sequence words of first, next, then, and finally.
At the end, students have a pumpkin craft and a writing activity. A win-win.
