Thanksgiving is tomorrow and like many, we will be eating the traditional menu of turkey, potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Well, the adults at least. My kids are not fans of pumpkin pie. I am hoping to change that this year and when I saw this adorable scented pumpkin pie craft in my daughter's preschool class, I thought it was a good way to start. This simple Fall activity uses many items you already have at home. If pumpkin pie is still not your child's thing, you can always try these Butterscotch Pumpkin Muffins.

- Paper plate
- Orange and brown paint
- Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
- Gold glitter
- Cotton ball
Provide your child with two paint cups, one with brown paint and one with orange paint. I actually added a little brown to my orange paint cup to make the orange a little darker. They can paint the "crust" part of the paper plate brown. You can put another plate under the "pie" so paint doesn't get on the table.
Finally, you can glue on a cotton ball as the whipped cream on your pie.
