Tissue Paper Pumpkin Project for Kids
(wow, try and say that 5x's fast)

 Do you remember doing this kind of project back in grade school? I like to bring up these oldie-but-goodie types of kid projects for my kids, that I did back when I was little. I remember having so much fun with this!
Supplies you will need
  • Paper with drawn outline of what you will be filling in 
  • Tissue paper squares (for this project I used 1"x1" squares, because the surface we were covering was so small) but you can cut them up to whatever size you want, depending on the space you will be filling in.
  • Popsicle stick, coffee stir, anything to help adhere your tissue to the surface.
  • Glue (any kind of kid craft glue) I used Elmer's glue
Place the popsicle stick in the middle of the square,(making sure not to poke it all the way through the tissue paper ) scrunch the paper, dip the end in glue and then place it upright onto your surface. Each time one is place onto the surface, make sure they count to 5 in order to get each one to stick.

They should be puffy and 3D looking. Now my three year old kinda ended up scrunching the tissue into balls and placing those in the outline. It worked too! It just had a different look to it!

Have fun with it! And remember, you can do this with any outline, and /or any Holiday! Pretty fall leaves, with multiple colored tissue! Easter eggs at Easter, or even flowers! It's endless what can be done with this project! Anyway, it would be nice to see your finished projects when your done!
Have fun!!

Peace be Yours
