Pumpkin Sewing

As many of the children have shown an interest in sewing, we added a sewing work with multiple steps.  First is to sew around two pieces of pumpkin shaped cardstock. This is slightly different than how we sew cardstock. 
 The second step is to rip newspaper and stuff it inside the pumpkin.
The third step is to paint the pumpkin on one side, let dry and paint other side.
The children then sew up opening and draw a face on the front with marker. 
They are really enjoying this multi-step activity.
