Pumpkin Print Craft with Thumbprints for a Halloween Keepsake

To make our pumpkin thumbprint craft, we needed just a few materials:

  • Paint
  • Paper
  • Foam Rollers

We started with foam “beads” that we used in our foam beading fine motor activity a while back.  Did you use foam rollers back in the day?  We practiced scissor skills with these and used them to make our pumpkin stamps this Fall.  From curls to pumpkin prints…these rollers have come a long way!

I pulled out our orange paint and let Baby Girl stamp away.

She pressed the foam pieces down on the paper pretty hard.  In fact, we weren’t even planning to make pumpkins, rather little circles.  Buuuut, pressing pretty hard on these circles make the hole in the center of the roller fill in with paint.  Perfect little pumpkins!
To make the leaves, we used green paint to stamp thumbprints.  Baby Girl loved doing this part!
Every painting project evolves into hand painting.  Of course.
Looking pretty cute!
I added a few curly ques to each of the pumpkins for vines.
