Pumpkin Painting – Toddlers & Preschoolers

Pumpkin Painting is a simple and fun activity for kids of all ages. Even the littlest one can do this if they can handle a paint brush.

What you need

  • Mini Pumpkin
  • Paint
  • Glue (optional)

How to

  • Wash the pumpkins and dry them using a washcloth or paper towel.
  • Give paint, brush and let your LOs paint the pumpkins as they desire.
  • Use tempera paint or washable paint for this project. Easy to wash off. We used washable paint. 
  • Mix school glue with paint (1:1), if you want it to last because paint starts to flake off after a couple of days.

Miss A(3yrs) & Miss D(2yrs) enjoyed painting the pumpkins. They always finish their painting activities by doing a messy hand painting (thats one reason why i did not add glue to the paint) but to my surprise they did not even attempt to do it this time. They asked for more pumpkins instead. They ended up painting 2 each.. Perfect for a simple evening activity. I loved how the painted pumpkins looked after they were dry. 😀 You can also carve your painted pumpkins for a cute halloween decor.
