Pumpkin Pie Kids’ Craft

Share the love...

Yesterday we made some adorable smiling pilgrims, and then I thought to myself “Why are they so happy? Oh ya…pumpkin pie!” It is one of the best things about the Thanksgiving feast. I really don’t know if it was part of the very first Thanksgiving, but it will be on our table this holiday, with LOTS of whipped cream on top. This craft is perfect for little ones because it is only a few steps and includes some simple, basic cutting. I hope you enjoy making this pumpkin pie kids’ craft almost as much as you enjoy eating the real thing.

If you like this craft, you will also like all of the other fun projects that start with nothing more than a triangle from made from popsicle sticks. Check out the new book from “In the Bag Kids’ Crafts”. Learn more here:


Life is hectic, we get it! No parent has ever thought, “If only I had more things to fill my time.” But, on the other hand, crafting memories with your kids is important, and something that you will never be able to get back if you miss it. And we do NOT want you to MISS IT! So, we are taking a unique approach to creating with your family by sticking to the same master list as a starting place for all of the craft projects here at inthebagkidscrafts.com. And, guess what, it is a small enough list that it fits into one bag, with no pricey or difficult to obtain items. Just one trip to your local craft store (or Amazon), and will be all set! It is like getting the gift of time. You are welcome!


  • 3 large popsicle sticks
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Orange paint
  • Orange construction paper
  • Cream colored paint
  • Clothespin
  • 2 medium pompoms
  • Cotton ball
  • Paper plate
  • Newspaper
  • Pencil

Here in the states, we are coming up on that time of the year where the kids will be out of school on several breaks. And what goes through the mind of every parent is, “I love my kids, but what in the world am I going to do with them for all of this time?” Lucky for you, I have the answer. Bring them here! (No, I do not mean to my house in western PA. Boundaries, people.) Get ready now by preparing your kit. Go HERE for the printable list (or Amazon links if you prefer). Once that it is done, I take it from there. When you are ready to craft, just pull the bag out that you have filled up, and you will be ready to make ANY project on this blog. Just scroll and point. Happy crafting!

Step 1

  • Glue 3 popsicle sticks together into a triangle frame and allow the glue to dry. This is something that you can do the day ahead. Even better, make several at a time to keep in your bag for other projects (like THIS ONE)
  • Pinch one of the pompoms with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
  • Place the triangle frame on the newspaper, squeeze out some orange paint and paint the frame
  • Let the paint dry while you move on to the next step

Step 2

  • Cut the edge off of the paper plate, about 1 1/2 inches deep
  • Trim it down so that it is just a little wider than the end of the triangle
  • Paint it with the cream colored paint and allow it to dry
  • *Don’t use too much paint

Step 3

  • Trace the outside of the triangle frame onto the orange construction paper
  • Draw another triangle just inside that one, by about 1/4″
  • Cut out the triangle
  • Glue it onto the back of the painted triangle
  • Glue the paper plate “crust” in place
  • And, last, add a dollup of whip cream to your pie by pulling off some of the cotton ball and gluing it into the middle of the triangle

Save this for later. Pin it to your favorite Pinterest board…
