Mega Bloks Painted Pumpkin

We love fall in our house. Earlier this week, we did a Open Ended Shape Witch and today, we did our first pumpkin craft for the season!

We started by reading Clifford’s Halloween by Norman Bridwell. It is an adorable story and a prefect book to read before a fall themed craft! This activity does not have much prep work. I simply cut out one big piece of white craft paper and one little piece. Next, I put some orange paint on the paper and let the little one move it around with the Mega Blok. Legos can be used for bigger kids. It was so much fun, that even Mr. Not So Crafty joined in.

After that, we repeated the process with brown paint.

Next, we let it dry for the rest of the day. This much painting fun takes awhile to dry. The next morning, I cut out around the shape of the paint. Your little one’s pumpkin might be round, it might be square, it might be all over the place, but it will be a unique creation of theirs. After that, I cut out a stem shape from the brown painted paper and glued it on!

    1. Me neither – I totally agree with Chelf! What a creative idea! Though I suppose pretty much anything is a painting tool (or a canvas, for that matter) in the hands of a preschooler lol…Great idea!

  1. one thing I wish more parents did is allow their kids to just get messy and create! Love that this is printed/painted with blocks, great for small hands!

  2. What a great way to use those mega blocks that my kids don’t play with anymore! They are sitting in a box in the attic. My boys are looking for a craft because we have a long weekend with no school Monday or Tuesday here so I may have to try this!

  3. This is such a great idea for a craft with the little ones! They actually are a bit excluded of other halloween activities like Pumpkin carving, because they are too young.

  4. I can see how it would be so much easier to paint the pumpkin using the megablocks rather than anything else. And I would imagine it would be a lot less messy as well. Great idea here.
