5 little pumpkins... Halloween craft for the kiddos

I apologize in advance if you have an aversion to scissors, glue, and cuteness.  You're just going to have to look away for a bit.  Zach has been insistent on making stuff for Halloween lately.  So I've been pressed to come up with things for him to do.  This time I was *not* inspired by Pinterest, but by the Halloween book we've been reading at bedtime lately.  It's the five little pumpkins rhyme:
5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first one said "oh my it's getting late"
The second one said "there are witches in the air"
The third one said "but we don't care!"
The fourth one said let's run and run and run"
The fifth one said "We're ready for some fun!"
ooooooo when the wind! And OUT went the light!
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight

All caught up now?  I decided what more festive thing to do than to have him make the five little pumpkins sitting on a gate?  I have a bag of popsicle sticks, I cut 5 of them in half and used that to make the gate.  Zach glued it on some blue background paper.

And then I cut out five little pumpkins for him to decorate and glue on the gate.  Easy peasy.  He LOVED it, and embellished with a "spooky spider" and other scary(?) drawings.

Cutting out eyes and mouths for the pumpkins

Using excessive amounts of glue to secure the pumpkin faces

TA-DA! The finished product
