Thanksgiving Craft: Paper Plate Pumpkin PieThanksgiving Crafts for Kids

I adore paper plate crafts! They are usually pretty simple and there are ideas for every season and every holiday! Now that I’m teaching pre-K I have a great opportunity to try some new crafts. My son isn’t quite old enough to do too many art projects but my students are. So I was on the hunt for Thanksgiving crafts for kids last week.

Paper Plate Pumpkin Pie

When I think of Thanksgiving, I immediately think of turkeys. But when my teaching partner suggested we make paper plate pumpkin pie, I was on board! Here’s what you need:

  • Orange and brown paint
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Paper plate
  • Paintbrush (optional, you can always use fingers!)
  • Pencil or pen

Here’s what you do:

  1. Cut the paper plate into 4 slices and draw a line to divide the pie crust from the filling.
  2. Paint the top edge brown to be the crust.
  3. Paint the center orange to be pumpkin pie filling.
  4. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle orange with pumpkin pie spice.

It’s that easy to make! Kids of all ages can get involved with this craft! It’s also a fun way to practice fractions with older kids!
