Kids will love drawing this 6-step Jack-O'-Lantern picture—independently! This reproducible lesson helps kids build fine motor skills, learn shapes, and practice following directions. Includes writing prompts and creative extension activities.
Give each student a 12- by 18-inch sheet of drawing paper. After children draw their pumpkins in pencil, have them outline their drawing with a thin paintbrush and black paint. Once the paint has dried, kids can color their pumpkins with crayons or markers. Then have them cut out the pumpkins and mount them on black paper!
