A Few More Steps...

5. Attach the legs and arms using brass paper fasteners.

6. Then, on your "Character Word Sheet" color the word blocks, and cut them out.

7. Now it is time to discuss the character traits listed on the word blocks. First, ask the question, " What is an internal quality or character trait?" Then, explain how our internal qualities and character traits can "shine" from the inside out.

8. Now discuss the meaning of each quality/character trait word block. As you discuss what each quality means, drop the words inside of Pumpkin Spice. Use the blank word blocks to add additional qualities.

9. Give examples of times when you have felt these qualities, and what it the qualities might feel like. Use the "Helpful Definitions" section to further explain these character traits.

10. Finally, Apply velcro circles to the body and the back of the clothing. Then, put the clothing on Pumpkin Spice.

11. Finish the lesson by reiterating that these feelings come from the inside, but when we feel them, others can also "see" them on the outside.

Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice is a story about discovering the confidence within each one of us to become who we were always meant to be.  In The Realm of Halloween, Pumpkin Spice is a member of the Clan of Pumpkin Heads, where she takes her natural place—tilling and growing pumpkins from moonlight pulled down from the clouds. However, her true love is baking pumpkin pie.  With assistance from field mice from her pumpkin patch, these little friends sew Pumpkin Spice more than a gown that is fit for a queen. Pumpkin Spice is given the gift of confidence.  As you read this whimsical Halloween tale, you will discover that the gift of confidence is all we need, because we are already royal!
