Halloween Toddler Activities
My children love carving pumpkins so naturally I thought we’d paint a jack’o lantern. I drew the outline of a pumpkin in orange marker, and we had orange paint at our disposal.
My daughter insisted on drawing her own pumpkin instead so she grabbed another piece of paper to get it done. However, instead of using a paintbrush I thought it would be fun to use a bottle cap to paint our pumpkins with so that we would get a nice texture going.
My toddler had a blast with it but got paint on her hands and then preferred to use the paintbrush that I used to mix the paint. She doesn’t like getting her hands dirty.
My son used the bottle cap to make the two eyes for his pumpkin but decided to paint the rest. I cut black shapes out of construction paper to add for the eyes, nose and mouth. However, my son had already painted his in and didn’t want them.
He did proceed to practice his scissor cutting skills by cutting out more shapes with the construction paper.
My daughter didn’t want to mess up her painting with my shapes so left them off.
