Pumpkin Color Blending: 1st Grade

Sometimes I get a wild hair to push my younger students!  I really wanted to encourage them to think of objects as having more than one color.  Instead of grabbing just an orange to color a pumpkin...think about what colors could be used to make a pumpkin have more impact.  So I had them pull all their yellow - red colors out of their crayon box.  I showed them how to blend one color into another as not to get a stripe effect.   I think for 1st graders...they did an AMAZING job!!
