Well, it's officially October and pumpkins are popping up everywhere!
This is a fun little pumpkin activity we've done a number of times already this year. My wall in my kitchen is covered with cute little pumpkins. This is a great activity for small kids and big kids alike!
orange paint & paint brush
black construction paper
Put a little bit of paint in a cup and then invite your child over to paint a "pumpkin" on a piece of paper.
For my son (22 months...yikes), I painted a circle for him and then let him paint inside the pumpkin.
Then cut out your faces for your pumpkins. (I just cut a variety of shapes for eyes, noses, months and stems.)
Then let your kids decorate their pumpkins anyway they like.
(This month soon became a pumpkin crown).
