Handprint Pumpkin Craft

Here’s a simple fall craft for the kids.  First you need to find a pumpkin coloring sheet.  Here are some free printable pumpkin coloring sheets to choose from.

  • Pumpkin Coloring Sheet
  • Crayons
  • White cardstock or construction paper
  • Green tempra or craft paint
  • paintbrush
  • scissors
  • glue

After the kids color their sheets, take a sheet of white cardstock or construction paper and the green paint to make the handprint.  Here’s a tip for painting perfect handprints.  Don’t smash their hand in a glob of paint and press it on the paper.   You’ll have a blobby mess.  Use a paintbrush and brush a moderate layer of paint on the hands and fingers.

After the handprints have dried, cut them out and glue them to the top of the pumpkin for the leaf.
