Fall is a great time to do fun little crafts. The weather can sometimes be cold or rainy, and it’s nice to have something to keep little hands busy. This Apple Pumpkin Painting activity is perfect for just those occasions!
This Apple Pumpkin Painting activity would also be an awesome addition to a classroom curriculum, or as an art project! I know we have a lot of readers here who are teachers, and I love to share ideas that could make things easier or more fun in your classroom!
Other fun fall ideas:
Fall crafts are so much fun. Pumpkins can span from September through the end of November, so this project can even be done more than once. This project would also be good for making cards too.
Acrylic paint (brown, orange and green)
1 – 2 apples
Ct the apple in half and press the white part of the apple into the paint. Feel free to use a lot of paint, you will need it to make a solid pumpkin shape.
To get the stem, press your thumb into the brown pain and then stamp your paper. Finally, use your index finger, dipped in green paint, to make swirly green vines from the side of the stem.
You can use diferent sized apples to make a whole pumpkin patch. If you want to really switch up sizes and shapes, you can use potatoes instead of apples. It’s the same concept, it will just make a different shape, and potatoes really vary.
I recommend doing these paintings on cardstock or thicker paper. The paint will warp thinner paper and it will dry wrinkly. These would even be cute to do on canvases and let your little one’s art be proudly displayed for the fall season!
