Here's a fun paper-pumpkin craft that I've done at the library and with my grandkids.
Fold a sheet of card stock or construction paper in half,
then fold each half to the centre.
Draw a pumpkin shape on a piece of cardboard or heavy paper.
Trace it onto the folded paper so that the pumpkin
goes off the paper on both sides.
Cut out the pumpkin shape...
...and unfold your pumpkin string.
Draw on faces or decorate as you wish.
