Have students use purple fingerpaint and paint a large piece of paper. After the painting is dry, use a circle template to trace around and cut out the fingerpainted paper (in shape of pie). Use a larger circle template to cut out a circle from brown construction paper. (edge of pie) Glue the purple circle on top of brown one. Use brown paper strips to criss-cross for pastry strips. You can then trace around the child's hand and attach it to the pie, with a purple plum cutout on his thumb.
