Steps:

  1. Pour orange paint on the paper plate or palette. Have your child stick their thumb pad into the paint. Now have them press their painted thumb on the paper once. This is one half of a pumpkin. They need to add more paint to their thumb and make another print beside the first one, overlapping a bit. Now they have the other half! They continue adding pumpkins until they feel their patch is complete.
  2. Add the dirt. Your child can finger paint the dirt or use a brush. If they would rather use crayon or marker, allow the pumpkins to dry first. In the photo are examples of paint, marker, and crayon dirt, going from top to bottom.

  4. Add the pumpkin stems, tendrils, leaves, and vines with marker or crayon. Allow to dry, cut into sections if desired, and laminate to make them last!
