Halloween Crafts: Pumpkin Stamping

Last week I decided to do a bit of seasonal arts and crafts with Oliver.  I must admit, I always have great intentions to do these things but I’m pretty bad in following through.  We do lots of drawing and colouring, but getting the paints out is always something I try and avoid because, well, mess!  The thing is, Oliver really loves paints, so when I get them out, he is always super eager to get going.  I always strip him down, because he always ends up with paint on him somewhere!

I thought as pumpkin season is upon us that I would make a pumpkin stamp.  To do this all you need is an apple and orange and green paints.  I just cut the apple in half and we painted the apple.  If you felt even more crafty you could cut out a design on the apple.  It’s so easy to do and Oliver really enjoyed stamping the apple on his paper.  So much so we went through a fair few pieces of paper!  He liked painting the colours on the apple, and on some of the other pages we were stamping on, he grabbed the paintbrush for some extra decoration!

We had great fun doing this and it is the perfect halloween craft for toddlers.  Oliver had such great fun, he even ended up with a pumpkin print on his tummy (who knows)!  And a good hand wash was definitely needed afterwards!

Have you tried this before?

    Lot’s of fun, no doubt! But in order to do this, we are going to need to sharpen our knives! Halving a pumpkin is hard work! TY! Happy Halloween! #triumphanttales xoxo
