Holiday Activity

My 2 year old son’s weekly co-op always has adorable project stations for the children. Last week there was a “pumpkin pie” station that integrated sensory with art. I decided we had to do it at home. So simple.

Pumpkin Pie

Materials Needed:

  1. Two pieces of construction paper {brown for the crust and orange for the pie}
  2. Glue
  3. Shaving Cream
  4. Small Paint Brush or Popsicle Sticks to apply Puff Paint
  5. Holiday Spices like Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Ginger

Paper Craft for Kids


  • Cut your “Piece of Pie” ahead of time by gluing a “triangular” or 1/3 circular shaped piece of orange construction paper onto top of a slightly larger piece of similar shaped brown construction paper.
  • Gather your spices
  • Mix your Puff Paint (shaving cream and glue)
  • Set up the project and invite the children to “top a piece of pie”
  • Encourage the children to apply the puff paint as though it were whipped cream on top of a delicious piece of pie
  • Then invite them to smell each spice. Name each spice as you smell it and then offer the children a turn to smell
  • Then ask them which spice(s) they would like to apply onto their pie and let them at it!
