Fall is the perfect time to gather around the campfire, take a trip to the farm, and, of course, pick pumpkins! These pumpkin crafts for kids are a great way to get the excitement going for your little ones before you head out to the pumpkin patch!
Pumpkin Fall Crafts for Kids
From big pumpkins to tiny little gourds, there are so many different ones out there for kids to choose from when they head to the pumpkin patch.
But what if you can’t go to the farm to grab a pumpkin off the vine? You can create your own of course!
These pumpkin crafts for kids are a great way to celebrate the spice of the fall while also giving them a chance to have their own pumpkins if they can’t have a real one.
Just like there are a variety of pumpkins to choose from in a myriad of shapes and sizes, so too are the pumpkin crafts below unique.
Each one has something special about it that made us want to include it on our list of everything pumpkin.
For the adults, there’s even a pumpkin spice coffee coloring page that you might want to check out and color while your kids are coloring their own pages!
Whichever pumpkin craft you decide to create, be sure that you have the necessary supplies on hand before you get started.
Most of the crafts don’t require anything special, but it’s always a good idea to make sure you have everything you’ll need before you get knee-deep in glue sticks and tissue paper!
Have fun making your pumpkins and be sure to display them on a classroom bulletin board, in your front window, or anywhere that fall decorations are appropriate!

Why Make Pumpkin Crafts
Just like any craft, these pumpkin cuties are a great way to bond with your children or students and create something from scratch.
They give kids a hands-on way to learn about pumpkins and talk about the holidays in the fall and the season itself.
While you may not be a huge fan of crafts and the mess they may make, it’s important to remember that kids learn best when they can involve multiple senses. These crafts help them do that.
So, take a deep breath and enjoy the moments spent making paper pumpkins. Before you know it, your kids will be older and won’t even want to craft with you!
