Color choices are another option. Give students a variety of pumpkin colors to choose from, to reinforce the fact that pumpkins can be orange, red, green, or white, with all of the shades in-between.
This is a quick, easy and fun craft that even young children can do. Children trace the pumpkin template on a sheet of newspaper and color it with an orange marker or crayon.
