I wanted to do something different than just plain old pumpkins, so we decided to make our pumpkins in the night. That way we could draw some spooky ghosts! 🙂 Then out orange pumpkins could really pop against the black paper, too. I showed kindergartners how to draw a pumpkin and that even though SOME pumpkins look like circle, it is not as easy as drawing just a plain circle. Then we discussed mixing the two primary colors, red and yellow to get orange. We took a poll, who thought it was equal amounts red and yellow, who thought it was more yellow, and who thought it was more red. Equal amounts won the vote, but they quickly saw that equal amounts of red and yellow really just make another variation of red. So we went back to the drawing board, and they voted on me adding more RED! Just kidding, they said yellow. 🙂 And they were right. The next week we cut them out, redrew in the black lines under the paint, and added all the details you see below. Here’s how their cutie patoot pumpkins turned out!
