These Pumpkin Apple Stamps are a fun way to celebrate the coming autumn season! This is a kids craft that will keep children busy creating works of art!
This is such a simple kids craft which I think makes it so great. Kids can stamp and paint their own pumpkins and add on funny faces when the paint dries. It’s a really fun autumn craft for kids that lets them use their imaginations and spark creativity.
If you are looking for more easy kids crafts be sure to check out some of my other projects like my Crumpled Paper Sunflower Craft, Sunshine and Cloud Paper Plate, or Rainbow Cloud Mobile.
I also have a selection of fun crafts for Halloween including Bat Halloween Treat Cups, Line Study Pumpkin Art for Kids, and Spooky Bat Halloween Bottlecap Magnets.
When your kids are done using apples to make pumpkin art, try letting them find other fresh produce or recyclable items to stamp with. The bottom of soda bottles can be used to make beautiful flower art for example. Have fun with it!
Pumpkin Apple Stamps
Orange craft paint
Green craft paint
#1. (Parent step) First cut your apples in half, dry inside and outside with paper towel
#2. On a paper plate or scrap paper, squirt a little orange paint on one, and green on the other
#3. Using the inside of the apple as a stamp , dip the inside of your apple in orange paint, making sure it’s completely covered in paint, then stamp on your white paper
#4. Using a paint brush, paint a leaf and stem of the top of your pumpkins
#5. Let your beautiful pumpkins dry and display proudly
Alternatively once your pumpkins dry, use black markers or crayons to create Jack-o-lanterns for some Halloween fun!

Hi Elizabeth, I absolutely love this craft idea ... I totally forget about using fruit/veggies for arts and crafts. It reminds me of something we would have done in school, but it's been so long since I've been there LOL. Pretty soon, I'm sure my kindergartener will come home to tell me about these type of projects. In the meantime, I included this post on my pumpkin craft roundup at http://www.sahmplus.com/favorite-pumpkin-crafts-activities-fall-2016/ Thanks for sharing such a cute activity! ~Ivy B
