Cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg�the smell of pumpkin pie in the kitchen is a sure sign that Thanksgiving is coming. This easy pumpkin pie craft is a fantastic preschool Thanksgiving craft. Your child paints a paper plate to look like a pumpkin pie and then adds real pumpkin pie spice to the paint as it dries so the whole craft smells just like a real pumpkin pie. Top it off with a cotton ball dollop of "whipped cream" and your Thanksgiving food craft is finished. We love crafts that evoke different senses and this pumpkin pie craft was a huge hit in our house�our daughter asked us to make this craft over and over again!

What you'll need:

  • Small paper plate
  • Brown and orange paint
  • Paint brush
  • Cotton ball
  • Pumpkin pie spice
How to make your Pumpkin Pie Craft
  • Paint the inside of the paper plate orange.
  • Paint the outside rim of the paper plate brown.
  • While the paint on the plate is still wet, sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice onto the plate.
  • Add a cotton ball to the middle of the paper plate (the paint will glue it into place).
