Festive Cornucopias

Posted on: November 13, 2010

Celebrate fall and the Thanksgiving holiday with this festive paper cornucopia project.  It is a beginner project that teaches cutting and coloring skills as well as naming colors, fruits and vegetables.  For older children this is a great opportunity to research the history of the cornucopia.

Things you will need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Crayons
  • A pencil

Step 1: Begin by drawing the shape of a cornucopia on brown construction paper.  Cut out the shape.

Step 2: Draw and cut out various items for the inside of the cornucopia.  Items typically found inside a cornucopia include pumpkins, grains, and flowers.  Other cornucopias might include fruits such as grapes and apples as well.

Step 3: Use your crayons to color fine details into your construction paper pieces.  You might add various colored corn kernels to the corn on the cob or seeds onto the sunflower.

Step 4: Arrange and glue each of the fruit and vegetable pieces to the cornucopia.

Congratulations!  You have made a festive fall cornucopia project!  Hang this on the door or the refrigerator as a festive way to greet your holiday guests.  Did you do this project?  How did it turn out?  Please feel free to share your comments and pictures in the comments section!  Happy crafting!
