Pumpkin Template Craft Ideas
Make a paper pumpkin craft using mosaic. You can use orange and green paper or cardstock and it’s a great way to use up any scrap paper you have around your home or classroom too or look out for junk mail or old magazines that you can repurpose.
To make your mosaic you can use scissors to cut the paper into shapes or tear it instead before using a glue stick or school glue (PVA glue) to stick it onto your pumpkin shapes.
Use it to make our button pumpkins. I did this with my daughter when she was a toddler but older kids will be able to fill the template more.
I’d recommend printing your template onto colored or white cardstock if you choose this activity due to the weight of the glue and buttons. This is a good one for fine motor skills too.
I used this template with our foil painted pumpkin craft and I really like the materials with this one as you can make the foil into different sizes for the pumpkin body and stem or to make the right size for your child to comfortably hold. Try using red and yellow paints to see if you can make orange.
If you just want to color in this pumpkin then that’s great too, this printable makes a perfect pumpkin coloring page. All you need to do is print out the PDF and grab your favorite crayons, coloring pencils or markers and you’re ready to get started. These pumpkin outlines would be really easy to turn into a Jack O’Lantern too, just design a face for it and draw it on using a black marker pen.
These Halloween themed suncatchers might not look like an easy craft at first glance, but I made these with my son when he was a preschooler so I know that they’re actually pretty simple! Using the cellophane is also a good way for kids to practice using scissors.
You could use this template to make the outline for our pumpkin suncatchers; click through for the full written instructions or you can also check out the little video I’ve shared on this page to show you the process and what they look like.
Use your template as a playdoh mat, all you need to to is once you have printed it laminate it and you can use playdough to design a face for it.
This would be a great way to use any of those dark, sludgy colors that kids create by mixing them all together!
If you want to print this template but aren’t near a printer right now then make sure you pin an image or bookmark this page so that you can return to it later.
