I love fall, but sometimes the weather is rather unpredictable. When we can’t enjoy the gorgeous colors outside, my youngest son and I stay busy doing art and craft projects inside. My son loves pumpkins! The first sugar pumpkin from our garden is his. And he carries it with him everywhere. Seriously. Don’t mess with his pumpkin and heaven forbid you should suggest baking it. So that I can actually use the rest of our pumpkins in recipes, I like to distract him with pumpkin craft projects on baking day.
Below are a list of pumpkin craft projects and fun pumpkin activities. These pumpkin crafts for kids can be done one-on-one at home, adapted to a class, or even used at a fall-inspired party. Most of the craft projects are both easy and inexpensive to make.
