The Cuddly Koalas children made Thanksgiving-themed pumpkin pies in one of their visual arts lessons. First, they learned to say Thanksgiving, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie. Then, they looked at pumpkin pie pictures and identified the main ingredients needed for making a pumpkin pie. We pretended that orange paint was pumpkin puree, liquid glue was melted butter, silver glitter was sugar, and gold glitter was cinnamon. First, they mixed pumpkin puree (orange paint), melted butter (liquid glue), sugar (silver glitter), and flour (white paint). They covered our baking moulds (Art paper) with our pasta, and we put them in the oven to bake. Until our pie was in the imaginary oven, we built our pie crusts with brown paper pieces. Then, once our pie smelled nice and ready, they took it out from the imaginary oven, put some pom poms as cream, and sprinkled sugar (silver glitter) and cinnamon (gold glitter) on the top.
