Fist Pumpkins

All you need to make these Fist Pumpkins is some orange and green paint, a thick paper or cardstock and a very enthusiastic kid who is happy to get paint on her/ his hands.


Orange and Green Paint

Heavy paper or Cardstock

Plate or Flat Container


Just pour some orange paint into a  plate or any flat container. Ask your child to make a fist and dipped her/his fist (knuckles) into orange paint. 

And press the knuckles onto the thick paper to make pumpkins. See easy peasy.  I love how the knuckles prints looks like ribs of a pumpkin.

After making as many pumpkins as you want. Dip your finger tip in green paint to add stems to the pumpkins.

Later on, you can draw some veins if you want.
