10 Craft Ideas To Do With Pumpkin Coloring Pages
Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Paper Confetti Pumpkins
For starters, you’ll need lots of confetti in orange, yellow, red, and even black. You can make it yourself using a hole punch or buy it at craft stores or online at Amazon.
You’ll also need glue to affix the confetti to the page!
You’ll instruct your kiddos to fill in the lines on their pumpkin illustration with the different colored confetti; if the pumpkin has a face, they do that in black.
9. Tissue Paper Pumpkins
Another cute way to “fill in the lines” is by getting orange, yellow, red, and black tissue paper.
Cut it up into 4” by 4” squares and have your kids pinch the middle, then twist to make a small rosette.
Then they’ll glue that down onto the page, using the black tissue paper for the pumpkin’s face (if they’re filling in one with a face).
8. Gift Baggies
Another use for my pumpkin pages is to turn them into cut-outs and use them to decorate paper bag gift baggies.
If you’re hosting a Halloween or fall-themed party and have some stuff to give to the partygoers, you can add a festive, homemade touch.
You should resize the illustrations to be slightly smaller (which you can do by copy/pasting the picture into a word processor) before printing them off.
7. Puffy Paint Pumpkins/Window Clings
So this craft is very cool because not only does it help your kids improve their fine motor skills, and once the puffy paint is dry, you can peel it off and stick it to the window.
You’ll get puffy paint in black, plus oranges and yellows, and have your kids color in pumpkin illustrations.
They can do as much or as little as they want, but if they fill in the pumpkins, that makes for the best window clings.
Let the puffy paint dry completely – which could take upwards of two days – and if you want, peel it off the page and place it in a sunny window.
6. Pumpkin Life Cycle Booklets
Have your students pick out three or four pumpkin illustrations for an October or November classroom craft.
You can then come up with an abbreviated life cycle together as a class or have the students research independently.
Then have them color in the illustrations and add the text to the page.
Bind the pages together in a portfolio or three-ring binder.
5. Pumpkin Suncatchers
For this beautiful craft, you’ll need transparency sheets on which to print the pumpkin illustrations.
Then you’ll need orange, yellow, red, and black tissue paper, cut into little pieces. The kids will place those pieces down, filling in the lines of the illustrations.
It’s okay if they overlap a bit or aren’t perfect within the outline; they will cut the pumpkin out.
Poke a hole in the top of the pumpkin and loop some string through. That’ll give you something to hang the pumpkin suncatchers within a sunny window.
4. Greeting Cards
You can always use my pumpkin illustrations as Halloween or autumnal greeting cards with a personalized touch.
You or your kids can color in the picture and then write a message on the inside.
You can copy/paste the illustration into a word processor and resize it to suit your desires.
3. Scrapbooking Cut-Outs
If you’re doing a page, or a few pages, on the month of October or Halloween, you can use my pumpkin pages as cut-outs to adorn the page.
Resize the pictures in a word processor and print off, color them in and cut them out, then use glue to affix them to the pages.
They make excellent background figures; you could even draw connecting vines and create a pumpkin patch.
2. String Pumpkins
You’ll need cardboard and string in orange, yellow, red, and green for this craft.
You’ll take the pumpkin illustration of choice and cut it out. Then you will trace around the cut-out onto a piece of cardboard.
You’ll cut out the cardboard and glue the two pieces together.
Then you’ll wrap the two pieces in the string, alternating colors as you see fit. You can use green for the stem.
1. Pumpkin Masks
If goblins and zombies are too scary for your kids, then consider making pumpkin masks for play.
Choose a pumpkin illustration where the central figure is quite round and prominent; you might have to “blow up” the picture just a bit to get the right fit.
You’ll have your kids color in just the pumpkin and then cut it out.
Poke holes on either side of the pumpkin and attach pieces of string, ribbon, or even yarn, enough so that you can tie a bow behind your child’s head.
