Knuckle Printed Pumpkins!

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!
