Now that my son has started school I’m on the look out for more crafts for toddlers that I can do with my daughter. This button pumpkin craft is a fun activity that can be used to celebrate fall or Halloween and is great for promoting fine motor skills.
Do you love Halloween? I do, but to be honest I’m not keen on the super scary stuff, apart from anything else, with two small people in tow I don’t want to deal with any nightmares! I do like the excuse for dressing up and having fun though and I see no reason why Halloween can’t be a fun and friendly celebration too! These cute pumpkin crafts should all help make your Halloween a bit sweeter, and if you’re looking for something even more child friendly or suitable for Thanksgiving or Harvest Festival celebrations there are a few with ‘scary’ faces where you could always leave the faces off? (I think they’re pretty sweet though?! What do you think?)
Just a quick post for me today but I was so pleased with this quick make of mine I had to share it! This project involved my current favourite thing to craft with (pumpkins) and my long term love (washi tape) so decorating pumpkins with washi tape seemed like the most sensible idea in the world to me!
So I *might* be a bit obsessed with the mini pumpkins I bought last week. Ok, I totally am. But after the diamante decorations I did myself I thought it would be fun to let my toddler in on the action. He loved it before when we used lots of different materials to paint with (the glee of something other than a paintbrush!) so I thought he would enjoy painting on a different kind of surface. I think that pumpkin painting for toddlers can be a bit tricky as pumpkins are so bright so we used white pumpkins to make it easier to see what my toddler had painted!
So today was the day I mentally planned to do some kind of diamante pumpkin thing and while my son was at playgroup I got busy. And you know what? It was not good. Too much faff. So I started again. Kept it simple. And I’m much happier with the results.
