This is a super fun and easy Pumpkin Craft we did last week. You only need a few materials that I’m pretty sure you have in your home already.
- Orange and Green Paint
- Construction Paper if you want to make a Jack O Lantern face
- Sponge pieces or cotton balls
- Large piece of paper (we used finger paint paper)
- Paint brush
- Glue if making Jack O Lantern
I set out a plate with orange paint and the girls used cotton balls to dab on their paper. I usually would use a square sponge, but we didn’t have any so we used the cotton balls instead and it worked out just the same The girls freely sponged their paper until they thought it looked like a pumpkin.
Using a paint brush I painted their hand green and handprinted it on the top of their pumpkins as the stem. I absolutely love using their hands to make art work!
Kaelyn really wanted to make hers a Jack-O-Lantern so I gave her some construction paper and a pair of scissors to cut out eyes and a mouth. I was quite impress with her cutting and did a wonderful job gluing down the pieces to make her Jack-O-Lantern.
Kaidence wanted to leave hers as a pumpkin and Kaelyn created a Jack-O-Lantern with hers. I love that they both created different Handprint Sponge Pumpkins! Now they hang on each side of our entertainment center as Halloween decorations along side our 3D Pumpkins!
These were one of my favorite Halloween Arts & Crafts this year! What is your favorite craft to do during Halloween?
