    Materials

    Orange and green construction paper
    Toilet paper roll
    Scotch tape
    Scissors

    Instructions 

    1.      Cut the toilet paper roll in half.  Cut a strip of orange construction paper that will wrap around the toilet paper roll completely and tape the paper into place.

    2.       Cut the orange construction paper vertically into 8 strips that are approximately 1 inch wide.

    3.       Stick a piece of scotch tape onto the end of one paper strip and tape it inside one end of the tp roll.  Repeat with three more pieces of paper, so you have strips at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock.

    4.       Once you have the initial 4 strips down, add another 4 strips of paper so that they overlap the initial 4 diagonally (at 2, 5, 8, and 10 o'clock).

    5.       Tape the other end of each strip into the other end of the tp roll. Do this just as you did before, only starting with the second set of strips first.

    6.       Once you have all of the orange strips of paper taped into place, cut a leaf out of green paper and tape it into the hole to complete your pumpkin.
