Easy pumpkin activities are perfect for fall afternoons at home.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
The fun pumpkin activities include painting pumpkins with toilet paper rolls, dressing the Halloween candy in pumpkin perfect wrapping, making fun paper plate pumpkins, and heading outside with a pumpkin and a hammer to let the kids have some fun with pumpkin smashing, with adult supervision of course.
No holiday is complete without a themed sensory bin. Dye some water orange and toss in all the pumpkin things one can find like ceramic pumpkins, foam pumpkins, and orange pom poms.
Another fun activity includes making a felt pumpkin. Make fun pumpkin faces and have the kids make the pumpkins to match each card. This activity has a free printable to go along with it.
Add a little sparking magic to the Halloween dress up with the easy to do wizard wand. All one needs is a stick, some paint, and a touch of glitter. The craft takes only minutes and it is perfect for boys and girls. It adds some sparkle to the little witches and wizards this Halloween.
Step one is collecting sticks in the yard or during a nature walk. Step two is painting the entire stick with paint. Gold looks the best but is not required. Other great colors are purple and black. Step three is adding glitter to the wet paint.
Ideas to add to the magic wand include bands, ribbons, star cut outs, stickers or bells. The stick makes a perfect party favor and will spark hours of imaginary playtime for kids.
