Easy Fall Crafts For Toddlers: Pumpkin Painting

There was a reason for pumpkin picking with the girls. I love arts and crafts or "activities" as Milani likes to call it. Painting pumpkin is messy but so much fun. Plus, it is really easy.

What you need:

The paint comes in a set of 10
  • Pumpkin
  • Crayola Washable Paint 
  • Old T-Shirts or Smocks 
  • Newspapers
  • Paint Brushes (Find them at Target, Michael's or any craft stores)
  • Paper plate


  • Find a large area for the your toddler or toddlers to have room to paint
  • Place newspaper on the floor. Even though the paint is washable, who feels like wiping up paint off the floor?
  • Place the pumpkins on the newspaper
  • Add the paints in circles on the plates
  • Put smocks or old t-shirts the toddler(s)
  • give a paint brush and let them have at it! 
  • Once they have finished (the children), put the pumpkins with the newspaper attached somewhere high so that your little ones cannot reach. 
  • Let the pumpkins dry

Below are pictures of the girls painting their pumpkins! SHARE your arts and crafts on our facebook page:


  1. This is a good idea! I haven't done anything festive for Halloween with my son due to work. But this seems fun and simple! Thanx for sharing!

  2. Super cute idea! I need to do this next year because craving those pumpkins were no joke and was to hard... were definitely painting and glittering our pumpkins next year!
