This activity is such a fun way for kids to explore the parts of a pumpkin with a super cute pumpkin craft . For this pumpkin parts craft you will need the following supplies:

- pumpkin seeds (from the nut aisle of your grocery store or cleaned from pumpkin carving)
- 1 yellow pipe cleaners (also known as chenille sticks)
- 2 green pipe cleaners
- yellow hair gel
- sandwich ziplock bag (a little larger than the size of your plate, so galloon size most likely)
- green construction paper
- brown construction paper or cardboard
- printable labels (optional) – in the pdf file below
First cut the center out of your orange plate. Then cut your yellow pipe cleaner in several pieces. Squirt hair gel, 10 pumpkin seeds, and pipe cleaner pieces in ziplock bag and seal it without any air in it. Now tape the bag to the back side of the plate.
This is such a fun to make and easy pumpkin craft that actually teaches kids about the pumpkin parts kindergarten.
