Let your kids learn all about the life cycle of a pumpkin with this interactive learning craft. Print out the template, assemble the craft, and your kids will be able to explore the different stages of the cycle in 3D.
From the seed and sprout…
…through the growing vines…
…and flowering plant…
…all the way to the fully grown pumpkin.
How to make 3D Pumpkin Life Cycle CraftWhat you need:
- our pumpkin life cycle model template
- heavier print paper / cardstock
- optional: coloring supplies if printing the black and white version
Step by step tutorial
Print out the templates – the pre-colored one or the black and white 3d diorama. With the black and white template, the first step you need to take is to color it in.
Cut out the template parts.
Fold along the dashed lines.
Make the folds nice and crisp.
Apply glue in the designated area.
Take one of the strips, fold along the dashed lines on both ends.
Apply glue on both ends.
Stick on the background.
Now take the parts of the pumpkin life cycle.
Stick them onto the strip.
You can also add labels marking each stage of the pumpkin life cycle.
Repeat with all stages. Once done, apply glue on the back of the diorama.
And glue them together.
One at a time…
…until you have all four glued together.
All done! Your Pumpkin Life Cycle Craft is complete.
