Pumpkin and Paint Activities

If carving pumpkins isn't your family's thing, use permanent markers or paint to decorate your gourds with faces that are just as silly or scary. For more fun with paint, cut your small pumpkins in half and let your kids dip and dabble with pumpkin printmaking. Papier-mâché pumpkins are another fun painting activity for your harvest artistes.
