Pumpkin Craft Pumpkin Activities 3D Label a Pumpkin Craft
- “An awesome resource!”
- “Students loved making these!”
- “These turned out so cute!”
Although I’ve seen a variety of 3D pumpkin crafts using paper strips to form the sphere, I could not find a pattern anywhere.
After a few hours of diddling around, I came up with this simple “print & go” pumpkin craftivity, complete with several pattern options and step-by-step directions using photographs of the various stages.
If your kiddos are like mine, they will absolutely LOVE that this is a 3 dimensional activity!
- "Cute product and everything was included and easy to complete!"
- "Very clear instructions and a great activity all around."
- “This is a great resource!” “My students love this pumpkin craft.”
- "Super easy and fun! We used this craft activity in our Fall Stations!"
Few teachers have the luxury of simply making a craft just for fun; so to incorporate some science standards, one of the options is to make a “label the pumpkin” craft.
I’ve included labeled templates for little ones, as well as blank ones, so that older students can label their own pieces.
I had a request for a SPANISH labeled version & those patterns have now been included.
You can also opt to simply make an unlabeled pumpkin, with the “skin strips” going all the way around the “core”, which is a toilet paper tube covered with a rectangle filled with pumpkin seed graphics. I’ve included fatter “shell” strips for this project.
If you don't have a TP tube, you can make a sturdy center using card stock.
Completed pumpkins are free standing and make adorable fall centerpieces.
For more pizzazz, punch holes in the TP tube and place over a battery-operated tea light.
I’ve also designed the stem as a “looped handle”, so that the pumpkin "lantern" can be carried, or suspended from the ceiling on various lengths of yarn.
A fun surprise after lunch:
Since the tube is hollow, after children have made their pumpkin leaving it on their desk, tuck a Snack Baggie filled with candy corn or candy pumpkins inside for a sweet Halloween treat when they return from recess.
