Pumpkin Hand Print

Toddler, Pre-K, K

A simple and fun way to make apples for fall! For this craft you will need:
  • Orange paint (washable is best)
  • Green & brown paint (optional)
  • Paper of any kind
  • One adorable little hand
Simply paint the palm of your child's hand with orange, making sure not to cover any of the fingers. Press your child's palm down firmly and bring back up. There you have your pumpkin! Now, you can either drawn on your stem, or get out the brown paint, and paint your child's index finger to press down for the stem. You can stop there, or paint your child's thumb green to make a leaf, or even a vine with many leaves going down the side. Be sure to add your child's name and the date.

Mommy Tip: Your child's hand is already full of paint and you can get more than one apple out of the layer you just put on their hand. Have a second piece of paper ready and make a second apple (or more if they are having fun). Save the other apple to send to Grandma or for daddy's desk at work.
