Continuing with our Autumn activities, the kids decided they wanted to paint pumpkins today. We decided against the paintbrush and chose to use our knuckles instead! This is a super simple activity which my son and daughter both love as it involves getting their hands messy – always a hit with my two little ones!
You will need – orange paint, paintbrush, paper and green pen / crayon.
Firstly, paint your knuckle with orange paint.
Then push your painted knuckle down onto your paper to make your print. Once dry, add a pumpkin stalk with green pen or crayon.
You could also add a scary face to adapt the activity for Halloween! We are going to make lots of these pumpkins with faces on, and use as bunting around the house for Halloween decoration!
A really simple activity for Autumn! Have fun!
