Pumpkin Crafts for Kids
Aren’t all these crafts gorgeous! More importantly though there’s lots of easy ideas, you want to make sure that whatever activity you choose for your child it’s something they’ll be able to make and with 25 crafts included here I’m pretty certain you’ll find the perfect pumpkin for your child!
Pumpkin crafts are also a great way to sneak in something a little educational if you want to. There’s lots of colour mixing as well as opportunities to practice scissor skills, fine motor skills and you can learn about what’s inside a pumpkin too.
Because I’m sharing both the spooky and non spooky kind of pumpkin crafts I’ve split it into two categories to make it a bit easier to find the right craft for you and your kids – Pumpkin Crafts Perfect for Thanksgiving or Harvest and Halloween Pumpkin Crafts.
In both cases you’ll find lots of awesome ideas, hopefully enough to keep you going throughout the season!
All of the pumpkin crafts for kids that I’m sharing today appear in the same order that you’ll find them in the collages below.
