Let the kids decide what color handprints they want to use. We opted for the traditional orange for our pumpkin.

hand and orange paint

Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hands. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!

2 orange handprints

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.
