Fist (Knuckle) Print Pumpkins

This is a fun fall craft for all kids. Putti had fun making these Pumpkins using her fists (knuckles) and I love how they turned out.

I saw this idea over at Little Elephants and loved it so much that wanted to try it.  We have done printing with pumpkins but this was something different and cute. Putti loves painting her hands and is always ready to do it.  All you need is some orange and green paint, a thick paper or cardstock and a very enthusiastic kid who is happy to get paint on her/ his hands. 
Just pour some orange paint into a  plate or any flat container. Ask your child to make a fist and dipped her/his fist (knuckles) into orange paint.

And press the knuckles onto the thick paper to make pumpkins. See easy peasy.  I love how the knuckles prints looks like ribs of a pumpkin.

 After making as many pumpkins as you want. Dip your finger tip in green paint to add stems to the pumpkins.

SO CUTE! I do a five little pumpkins activity to review family vocabulary words. Normally we cut out the different family members of pumpkins (mom, dad, baby, sister, baby) when we say the song we hold up the correct pumpkin. Always TONS of fuN!

But I can totally see us making out own pumpkin family instead with this!

Thanks everyone! Hope your kiddos have fun making these too.
