I made yellow and red play dough and rolled them into individual balls. In the basket is a pin poker to 'dot' their initials with on the bottom of the pumpkin, and I cut up a thin willow branch for the stems.
First they make 'snakes' and then twist them together. It takes quite a while for the colors to mix to it's a lot of rolling, squeezing, and pinching for them!
It took her probably 10 minutes to get this orange color!
Here it is all done! My friend Tiffany had the idea of making a small pumpkin patch on top of a little shelf! We lined it with brown felt and I just cut some leaves off a ground cover plant off the playground!
