Supplies Needed to make these cute pumpkin pie slices:

  • paper plate, cheap dinner size

  • small googly eyes
  • pink buttons
  • cotton balls
  • glue stick or white glue
  • black sharpie or paint pen
  • pink buttons, optional

How to Make this Pumpkin Pie Craft:

1. Start off by painting the inside of your paper plate with orange paint and the outside rim in your light brown paint color. Let dry.

2. Once your plate is dry cut your paper plate in half. Cut the two half circles in half again to create pie slices.

3. Add cotton balls or white pom poms, as the whipped cream topping, towards the edge of the slice but still on the orange pie filling.

4. If desired, add facial features with your googly eyes, pink buttons and sharpie marker.


What can I use instead of paint?

If you want to skip an extra mess that you will need to clean up on Turkey Day you can color your paper plate with markers or crayons. For a more elevated look you can also glue on some orange tissue paper squares to your plate to act as the pie. Repeat with brown squares for the crust. 

What creative things can I do with these pumpkin pie slices?

  1. Tape these slices to a piece of Jute and make your pumpkin pie slices into a cute garland.
  2. Use the individual pumpkin pie slices as place cards for your dinner guests. 
  3. On each slice of the pumpkin pie, have your child write what they are thankful for. Put all the pie slices together and now you have a thankful pie to share with the Thanksgiving dinner table. 
  4. If you are a teacher,you can have your students write what they are thankful for on their own individual slices of pie and add them to your classroom bulletin boards. This is a great way to show gratitude at your school!
