A Fall Craft the Kids Will Love!

Oct 8, 2023 | Funtime

A Fall Craft the Kids Will Love!The leaves are falling, and we are starting to get crafty with ideas for what to do with the grandkids when they come over this season! The days get shorter, and we find ourselves inside a bit more than we prefer. What to do? We found this adorable pumpkin handprint craft that can be done with your toddler/younger grandchildren, get creative!

If you make this an annual project and start saving all your imprints, you’ll be able to see the growth of your children’s’ hands over the years. Much cuter than height markers on the back of the closet door!

This craft can be a fun idea and fitting for Thanksgiving as well, because each pumpkin represents one family member that you are thankful for. You can take it one step further and have each member add a notation of what they are thankful for on or beneath their pumpkin.

Easy Fist Bump-kins Pumpkin Craft
What you need:
Nontoxic, washable craft paint in Orange and Brown
A small paint brush
Paper plate
Green construction or card stock paper
Willing participants ready to fist bump… the paper! Not you, ‘cause that would be messy!

How to make pumpkin fists:
1. Squeeze a good-sized blob of orange paint onto your paper plate.
2. Have your participant make a fist.
3. Using the small paint brush, cover the front (finger side) of their fist with paint, covering all creases
4. Push the fist down firmly onto the construction paper taking care not to move or it will smudge.
5. Hold the paper while your participant quickly lifts his/her fist up off of the paper.
6. Continue the above steps until all fists have been printed.
7. Paint stems and decorate as desired!

Voila!fist bump-kins! Clever. If you like, stick your completed creation in a frame to display. Or, tuck it away in a memory book or scrapbook and wait until next fall when you can do the whole thing all over again!
