Simple Halloween Craft: Paper pumpkins

Decorating paper pumpkins

All three kids really enjoyed decorating this simple Halloween Craft, decorating pumpkins I cut out of orange construction paper!

Completed finished pumpkins

I love how clear it is which pumpkin belongs to which child!

    I too love the distinct nature of each pumpkin which so clearly represents the age and stage of each of your beautiful children’s development. So very sweet :)

  6. I wanted to say thank you for what you said about my photo on Feature Yourself Friday. I have just started taking pictures and find so much inspiration in my rugged west texas surroundings =)

  7. Sometimes the best crafts are the simplest! I was going to do this for our mom’s club halloween party today. (I ended up getting sticker pumpkin making kits from Michael’s but I think these would have been more fun. I was just too lazy to cut out 30 pumpkins). I should do your idea with my boy too. :)

  8. @Elise – What a great idea to pair the spray bottle with paper towels and colored pens – thanks!

  9. Such a precious photo of Emma, Johnny and Lily decorating their pumpkins. Their creations are delightful.

    Often when Blakie is having a grumpy day, I will offer him our spray bottle and all is well again with the world. Ahh, the power of a spray bottle. Sav and Blake really enjoy using coloured pens on paper towels and then using a spray bottle (containing water) to spray over their paper towel creations – simple fun.

    Your children are going to enjoy using their Halloween countdown chain they made. A countdown is always a wonderful thing to do when you are really looking forward to an event.
