Pumpkin Craft Kit
Great Kindergarten Craft
I bought this for a craft for my sons Kindergarten Halloween Class. We had 10 min stations. The kids loved it. Using the eraser end of the pencil was much too complicated for their little fingers. So, they just crumpled up the paper and made their designs. Some of the kids were very meticulous, others weren't, but all had fun. Make sure you show them how to crumple up the tissue paper, otherwise they will just put it on flat and won't have enough room to make their faces. We stapled the ribbon on the stem instead of gluing, which was a little tricky. You really don't even need the ribbon unless you are planning on hanging it somewhere. All in all a great craft for the price and enjoyment.

Kids loved it!
My third grade students made these for Halloween. I ordered more tissue paper squares so they could be as creative with the face as they wanted. They turned out great!

somewhat difficult for little hands to manage
Peeling off the outer layer to expose the sticky paper was too difficult for 8 year olds, so I had to start each one. Most figured out how to wrap the end of a pencil and placed the tissue correctly, but several had trouble keeping extra tissue off the sticky surface. Probably doing the same activity with glue sticks would have been better.

The pumpkins are great.
The craft takes time and younger children can be "bored" before they complete the project. The finished product looks great and are proudly displayed.

Not so sticky
Looked like a great activity for Sunday School class of 4th and 5th graders. Although it was shipped 10/21, we received it 10/30- so no time to alter our project. Turns out the 'adhesive' on the cardboard pumpkins was old, so some parts of the pumpkin were sticky and some were not. The kids had to use glue to stick the tissue paper to the pumpkins. Very dissapointing.
