Cut small squares of various colors of paper. On a piece of heavy white paper stock, draw the outline of a pumpkin, Frankenstein or other Halloween character. With a small dab of all-purpose glue on the back of each square, you can mosaic their way to a uniquely creative masterpiece that can be framed and hung on the wall for many Halloween seasons to come.
Pumpkin Painting is the perfect activity for little goblins who aren’t old enough to handle the jack-o-lantern carving duties. With simple supplies like acrylic paints, markers, newspaper and sealer, kids can paint whimsical, silly faces on their pumpkins. Painted pumpkins do not rot nearly as quickly as carved pumpkins and it’s also much safer and more hands-on for toddlers since there is no knife involved.
