Halloween Pumpkin Painting Guide

With each yearly visit to the pumpkin patch, many people often wonder how to make the most of the prize pumpkin that was chosen by a child.
Why don't you try something new this year?  Pumpkin Painting is the perfect solution to a creative dilemma!


Just forget  about the messy ideas of carving a pumpkin if it seems to hard and try pumpkin painting this year.
Painting silly, goofy or scary faces or other designs can be fun yet simple activity for children and adults as well.

The best thing about it is that preschool children can participate in creating their own designs for their pumpkins.  You certainly can't say that about carving pumpkins!

The easiest design to paint on a pumpkin is a traditional jack-o-lantern face. But there are some other ideas and designs such as:

- goblins
- spiders
- ghosts
 - witches
- silly or goofy faces
- favorite cartoon characters
- fall leaves
- scarecrow
- princess
- turkey
- cats

Painting pumpkins is a very economical craft because most of the supplies are already available :
- washable markers
- acrylic craft paints
- newspaper
- spray sealer
- accessories such as raffia, jewelry, hats, etc.
I'm sure you all have got some of these at your home.

Before beginning, decide what design you are going to paint and trace that design onto a clean pumpkin. You can freehand the design or select one of the many designs in the ultimate e-guide for pumpkin painting, Easy Pumpkin Painting.

Once you or your child have painted your first pumpkin (you'll be addicted to it), chances are you’ll want to paint an entire pumpkin family to proudly display at your home. Pumpkin Painting is an annual family tradition at our house. We hope it will be at yours as well.
