Craft Pumpkins that Kids will Love to Make
It’s me again, and we’re back with a fun way to teach you what to do with craft pumpkins that the kids would have fun doing.
As most of you know I am a mom and foster mom. We love coming up with all sorts of ideas that are outrageous and FUN to create!
In fact, we take learning how to make a DIY pumpkin to a whole new level of fun for the fall and early winter!
The best part is you may already have some of the recycled items lying around your house!
If so, score! No need to run out unless you want to grab a pie too!
All it takes is the following items:
- Cardboard Tip: No need to buy, using a leftover cardboard box works great!
- Orange Poster Board (Check the price on Amazon here!)
- Green Construction Paper
- Duct Tape
If you have all of the items already great!
In fact, so easy busy moms, teachers, and crafters will love this idea because it doesn’t take very long to make.
How to make a diy pumpkin
First, cut a pumpkin design out of cardboard. The bigger the funnier for pictures.
For example, you can tell in this picture below!
Next, using the cardboard pumpkin trace it around the orange poster board making it equal sizes.
After that glue the orange paper (orange poster board) onto the cardboard. Next, you will need to add the green stem.
After that, feel free to let the kids paint, color, or draw a face on the pumpkin if you’d like. We kept the pumpkin as is for a fall theme that could be used for a Halloween pumpkin craft or even a Thanksgiving pumpkin craft too.
Lastly, once you are finished putting the entire pumpkin project together.
Then, you will need to add the duct tape for the feet. Depending on the age of the child you will need to size the duct tape accordingly.
Personally, I took the duct tape folded it together and placed it on the pumpkin, and taped each side. This held the tape on the pumpkin nicely.
Each of my children were able to walk around with gigantic pumpkin feet and laugh.
Oh did we laugh… haha! It’s definitely a picture worth taking and posting on social media!
This craft turned into a fun project for fall that my kiddos loved walking around, in the backyard with for a while.
Get silly, get crafty, and get your holiday on!
