Painting Palm Pumpkins with Toddlers

Painting Palm Pumpkins with Toddlers

My youngest has just about hit the 17 month mark and has a very big interest in coloring and painting (which makes momma excited as well!) For this little project, we explored paint by using the palm of our hands and fingers to create pumpkins (jack-o-latterns) in a field.

Classified: Easy and is great for toddlers and young preschool-aged children.

What you need:
  • Black, orange, green and brown paint
  • White paper
  • A paint brush to paint the toddler's hand
  • Supplies to clean little hands and faces of paint!

What to do:
1. Have your toddler hold out his/her hand and paint his palm with orange paint. My little man laughed tremendously as the paint brush tickled the inner part of his hand! Stamp it onto paper. Repeat as necessary.

2. Guide them into making eyes, noses and mouths using their little fingers in black paint. Talk about each facial part as you are working together. Create a stem and leaf using their fingers as well.

 3. Dip each finger of your toddler into green paint and guide them as they make fingerprints for grass.

4. Dry and hang.

  1. Awww I love this! I'm a huge fan of hand a foot print crafts, and I LOVE anything I can do with my toddler while my older boy is in school. :) Your little man is adorable! I would love it if you would stop by my blog to say hi! We made some pumpkin playdough this week that we're really proud of! I'm also featuring a recipe for pumpkin pancakes today! I hope you're having an awesome day!
