To make a fun fall pumpkin, you will need: a ruler, four 8 1/2″ (21.6 cm) square pieces of orange construction paper, a pencil, scissors, four 8 1/2″ (21.6 cm) square pieces of black construction paper, glue, and a piece of green construction paper.

  1. 1.

    Stack the four pieces of orange construction paper; fold the stack in half.

  2. 2.
