How to Make the Square Pumpkin Snack
First read the book, “The Legend of Spooky The Square Pumpkin,” and then tell students they are going to make their own square pumpkin.
Have students take their graham cracker and use the spoon (or spatula) to spread orange frosting all around it.
Next, students can squirt some green gel frosting at the top so it looks like a pumpkin stem.
Now have the preschoolers make a mouth for their pumpkin with the red gel frosting.
Lastly, students can add the edible candy eyes to the pumpkin.
Now students can enjoy eating their tasty square pumpkin snack!
