Lentil Pumpkin Art

It was 90 degrees Fahrenheit today and I got irritated. I was all dressed in a cardigan just a few days ago. Now, I'm quite familiar with the ebb and flow of seasonal changes but I just cannot help having a maniacal and enthusiastic feeling for cooler temps. I need to remind myself of that sweet lady in the church lunch line who demanded that I, a young, plump and eager dessert-line-cutting-monster-child remember, "Patience child! Patience is a virtue!"

Indeed it is church lady. Indeed it is.

Though the temperature may be stifling and oppressive at 90 degrees, my heart is settling in quite pleasantly at 70. I am ready to absorb all things Autumnal. Come with me now as we craft our way into a cardigan.


1. Red and green/brown lentils

2. White glue

3. Black and white construction paper


1. Lay white construction paper down and outline a pumpkin shape with the glue. Create vertical lines with the glue. Use the black construction paper to create a Jack-O-Lantern. Outline the pumpkin shape, then add triangles and a mouth. Fill in with glue.

2. Add the red lentils! Dump them on and shake around! Dump them off! It helps to collect them with a plate or other container.

3. Use glue to create the stem. Add green or brown lentils and repeat step 2.

Ta- Da!

This was a great way to spend time with the kiddos! It was super easy too! Do give it a go and let me know what you think!
