Pumpkin Plates

We are currently on half term and what better way to pass the time than doing a bit of Halloween craft by making Pumpkin Plates.


This simple activity involves just paper plates, crayon and orange plate

(green feathers/or green paint optional)


Simply draw your pumpkin face or pattern onto the paper plate with a black crayon.

Then paint over it.

My 9 year old did not know that the paint would separate away so that it didn’t actually stay over the crayon.

Thus meaning he didn’t have to worry about keeping to the lines.

My 5 year old loved this activity.


And you don’t have to paint right up to the edges.
