Thankful Pumpkin Craft-orange & green paper, staples, scissors. Cut out 8 pc of orange paper into 1 inch strips. Cut out 2 leaves and 2 skinny strips of green paper for the vines. Write what they are thankful for on each strip of orange paper. Be sure to leave about a 1 inch space on the sides of the strip so the writing isn't covered up when stapled together. Use a stapler to attach the orange strips at the top and then at the bottom to form a pumpkin. Add your leaves and green vines.
