“Twist & Mix” Color Mixing
White Card stock Paper
Step 1: Squirt a small dot of red and yellow paint in the center of the paper plate.
Step 2: Flip the plate upside down on top of the white paper and twist the plate back and forth.
Step 3: Take a peek and look to see what color red and yellow create! Twist more if needed. Let the painting dry. Repeat as necessary.
Small Circle Bowl
Washable Paint (optional)
Step 1: Place the bowl upside down on your painting and trace a circle with the pencil. Cut out the circle.
Step 2: Using the construction paper cut a rectangle shape for the stem. M-Woww wanted to add a leaf so she drew and cut one out.
Step 3: Arrange your shapes to create a pumpkin and glue on to a piece of construction paper.
ART TIP: Have your child draw the shape on the paper first and then cut the shape out.
Step 4: For an additional STEAM challenge create a pattern border around your pumpkin. M-Woww chose to do an ABAB pattern with her finger and paint. You also could use your construction paper scraps to create a collage border.
