Cute And Easy Pumpkin Craft Ideas for Kids

Telegram Group Join Now

Halloween, everyone’s favorite holiday, is almost here! And candy and costumes—every parent knows why. It may be enjoyable and beneficial to also involve the kids in a crafting activity that will foster their creativity, help them develop their fine motor skills, and, selfishly, keep them out of your hair for a short while—even though most parents are more than happy to indulge them in both (at least for one night a year).

Okay, if we’re honest, we can’t guarantee kids won’t be calling “mom” or “dad” within a minute or two, but with these easy pumpkin craft ideas, you can set up the supplies and walk away. So gather your stuff at the craft store and prepare for a Halloween-making extravaganza!

The tiniest ones will enjoy adding googly eyes to a pumpkin they stamped from a sliced apple or painting their handprint in the center of a pumpkin they sculpted from air-dry or oven-baked clay. Older children will enjoy helping prepare the Halloween table by folding an orange napkin into the shape of a pumpkin for each place setting or stacking sheets of orange craft paper to create a ruffled pumpkin with a stick stem.

Before kids dress up, do some tricks, and devour fistfuls of candy, set up a crafting station and watch what enjoyable project they decide to produce. We would also be thrilled to see them! Post images in the space provided for comments below!
