If you are looking for a fun fall activity to do with the kids, pumpkin crafts are the perfect idea! They are quick and easy and don't require a lot of skills to create.
Let the kids have fun with it. And with 21 simple and creative pumpkin crafts gathered here, you have a ton of inspiration to make with your family.
We made sure to include ideas for toddlers too, so no age is left out. Enjoy!
Forky from Toy Story is a favorite kids character, so you can imagine how much fun they will have creating their very own Forky pumpkin! It's the perfect pumpkin craft for Halloween. How cute would this be nestled on their nightstand where they can see it before bed each night?
Simply pick up a white foam pumpkin and a few inexpensive craft supplies and let the fun begin! You can easily use white glue rather than a hot glue gun to make it kid-friendly.
Wood slice crafts are fun and inexpensive to make. The great thing about using a wood slice, is it's double-sided so the kids can paint a pumpkin on one side, and a snowman on the other! You can even use chalkboard paint on the wood slice and tie a piece of chalk to the pumpkin stem.
The kids will love to write their name, or make it for Mom and Dad. They can also erase it and reuse it. It's a great way for younger kids to practice their letters too!
No Halloween is complete without a paper plate pumpkin! Who else remembers making paper plate crafts in school? The kids will have a blast putting their own personal touch on a yarn-wrapped pumpkin. This would be so fun as a Saturday afternoon craft, or idea for a fall birthday party activity with a few of your child's friends. It's easy and inexpensive.
Stitch from Disney's Lilo and Stitch is a beloved Disney character. It's so easy to make a sweet Stitch pumpkin, but will need adult assistance.
You can cut out the silhouette just using a print out on copy paper and let the kids paint the classic blue stitch color around it, as well as the stem. The lighted pumpkin placed inside would be adorable in their window, or on their nightstand.
Pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes. The kids will get such a kick out of making pumpkin crafts out of walnuts! They can paint them until their hearts are content and add a cute hat. I could see these being used to make a witch's hat too.
They are budget-friendly and the kids could make up an entire pumpkin family! What a cute little gift they could give to their friends for Halloween too. This is such a creative idea.
Not only are these pumpkin crafts absolutely adorable, but they also help kids with fine motor skills. Any time you can combine play time and learning time, it is a win! All you need is a few simple craft supplies that you may already have in your art closet.
Or you could easily find them at a dollar store for cheap. This is such a fun rainy afternoon craft that kids of all ages will enjoy making.
We all know how much kids love legos. But have you ever seen them used for painting pumpkins? This simple DIY tutorial will show you how easy it is to let the kids use their legos in a completely new and fun way!
The paint can be washed off after so the lego is still useful for play time. This same idea can be used to paint other fall and Halloween crafts.
This fun craft project is great for kids, and adults will enjoy it too! This pumpkin craft
can be made in no time, so it’s perfect for the kiddos, or a beginner crafter.
You only need a few craft supplies too, so it's budget-friendly.
How adorable are these chalkboard pumpkin crafts? While this tutorial uses a stencil, you can make it even easier by just having the kids use a piece of chalk to write their name or teacher's name, as a sweet Halloween gift.
Pick up a few dollar store foam pumpkins and some chalkboard paint and let the kids run with it!
With all these adorable pumpkin crafts to choose from, you have plenty of inspiration to enjoy a crafternoon with the kiddos. I could see several of theses ideas being used as a fall gift idea for the grandparents too!
