Handprint Pumpkin Fun
You probably have all of the supplies to make this fun little pumpkin handprint.
Supplies needed to create a handprint pumpkin:
- cardstock (or if you want to print it on colored paper we love this colorful cardstock)
- washable paints (these are the ones we use for all of our handprint crafts)
- kids glue
- googly wiggle eyes (Optional)
- Wipes!! It helps to have these handy so you don’t make a complete mess of your table!
How to use the pumpkin handprint template
Print out the template below, it will print out on three full pages and will print out landscape. Make sure to check the printer settings.
If you are printing on colored paper please only print the first page. The second and third pages are the Halloween stickers, and these will definitely look better printed on white paper.
This pumpkin template printable is free to print but is for personal and classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the post and add your email address to get the pdf file.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
The first page is the pumpkin handprint template.
The other two pages are stickers that you can cut around and add to the pumpkin handprint craft.
Grab the supplies above and get creating!
Let the kids decide what color handprints they want to use. We opted for the traditional orange for our pumpkin.
Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hands. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Cover their hands with paint and place their hands downward with the stalk at the top in the middle. With the eyes being in the middle of their palms.
Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull the child’s hand up carefully making sure you don’t smudge the handprint.
Let it dry completely before adding googly eyes and stickers.
Cut out the stickers and let the kids decide whether they want to add them to this picture or to another one.
The stickers will also look good as decorations on the trick-or-treat bags too.
