Easy Pumpkin Craft for Kids

My love for crafting has certainly been passed on to my son. He loves creating new things and decorating. He’s a chip off the old block! It’s the cutest when he makes projects for my blog. This easy pumpkin craft for kids I just had to share! He created it, made it, and taught his sister how to make one too.

Supplies for Fall or Halloween Pumpkin Craft

2 Paper Bowls
Paint Markers
Green Paper for the stem
Elmers School Glue

Before I get started, I really want to share how much I love the paint markers. My kids love to paint and these are an easy alternative to paint. The paint markers are the best for paper bowls or plate crafts because it makes covering the area so easy without the mess and hassle of paint.

They are quick drying and 100% washable. The other day my son was making an apple man, had red paint marker all over the placemat and then somehow it ended up on my newly painted walls. I had that mom freak out moment because I had left the room for 2 seconds, but no worries because it all easily came clean. My face said it all when I saw the wall and my son started saying “sorry mama.” I can’t say enough good things about these markers, they are a must have in our house.

This pumpkin craft is really great for all ages from toddler to elementary. My 4 and 6 year old were easily able to glue the bowls together, but maybe for a toddler you could pre-glue the bowls together. Also for the Jack O’Lantern, you could use construction paper for the face instead of drawing one.
