A Wall of Pumpkins Halloween Art for Toddlers

We’ve decorated paper pumpkins before, but never this many! Gramma patiently cut them out, and they were lovingly decorated by our three resident artists.

I love the range of expressions! The smiling ones are lovely, but my favorite may be the large one slightly above Lily’s head, decorated by Johnny. This poor pumpkin is crying because he is covered in mosquito bites, and has a mosquito AND a spider on his head! I would be crying too, under those circumstances!

I love the way simple art projects like this one can help kids explore emotional intelligence!

  1. Oh my goodness! I saw the picture of your daughter at that age and thought it was mine from the back because I’d forgotten we had both done very similar activities!
    Man, they were so fun when they were little (and also super fun now.

  2. Talk about great minds think alike. Savvy, Blakie and Taleea “decorated” paper pumpkins earlier in the week too. Actually, Savvy turned her pumpkins on the side and turned them into elephants. I have a blog post about this in draft waiting to be finished.

    Poor bitten pumpkin! Is Johnny plagued by mosquito bites like Michael is?

    I love how this medium allows them to think about expressions and emotions in a non-traditional way.

    1. They explored a LOT of emotions and expressions, it was a lot of fun!

      All of my kids are mosquito magnets – and this year we have a LOT of mosquitoes, with the hurricane and very rainy summer we’ve had!

    1. I was a little surprised Johnny didn’t make him a band-aid – that’s how he prefers to look after his own mosquito bites =)
