Halloween Pumpkin Print Card for Kids
Halloween is coming, and your family and friends can’t wait to see your child dressed in her super-creative costume. But, grandma lives in another state, Aunt Ethel can’t come over on Halloween night and your sister is out with her own kids. Your child can craft her own Halloween greeting card that features pretty painting print pumpkins! The best part is that you can attach a picture from Halloween night (of your child dressed in her costume) inside. You can also use this kids’ craft to celebrate the autumnal equinox (without the picture, as a fall card).
- Letter-sized card stock paper
- Orange and brown tempera paint
- A reused paper towel roll (just the cardboard part)
- A thin paintbrush
- Clear double-sided tape
- Position the paper vertically. Cut it at the center, making two cards.
- Fold one half of the paper down, making a card.
- Pour a small pool of the orange paint onto a paper plate or piece of wax paper.
- Dip the end of the cardboard tube (the paper towel roll) into the paint.
- Press the painted tube onto the paper. Repeat a few more times. Your child is created pumpkin outlines for the card.
- Paint the inside of the pumpkins. Your child can dip her finger in the paint and fingerprint the orange inside.
- Add a stem. Dip a thin paintbrush into the brown paint and swipe the stem onto the card stock.
- When the paint dries, open the card and tape a photo of your child inside. Your child can also write a special message along with adding the photo.
