Easy Pumpkin Craft


What you need:

  1. Paper plates
  2. Googley eyes
  3. Orange paint
  4. Green paint
  5. Brushes
  6. Black construction paper
  7. White construction paper


Children will paint their plate using the orange paint and soft brushes. I tried to take a photo of their hand printing but they obviously loved the activity and one hand printing became a collage of hands, we were too busy for pictures. It was fun!


We presented the material in different plates to add, we did not direct, so some of the 4 year old children were able to place all things in place (nose, teeth, mouth) however the 2’s and 3’s not so much… which makes it even more creative and unique.


Lastly we put together the top leaves (green hand printing) as pumpkin leaves. The part they most enjoyed was glueing the teeth in the mouth… make sure to have a cup full of these.
