Pumpkin Craft for Preschool!
Step 1: Gather your supplies for the pumpkin craft! Print your pumpkin cutouts onto cardstock paper. This is a great craft to try sponge painting! Use a sponge to splash color across your paper plate. If you’re not in the mood for paint, watercolors work great for filling in your paper plate.
Step 2: Cut out your pumpkin cutouts. Add some glitter to you paper plate! This makes your fall craft all sparkly and full of cheer! Be sure to print your Scarecrow Craft for another great craft that celebrates fall!
Step 3: Use markers or crayons to color in your pumpkin cutouts. This was a great chance for me to try out my neon yellow crayon! It gave me the perfect effect of a candle shining through the pumpkin! Finally, use glue to paste your pieces to your paper plate.
