Drip Painting Pumpkins with Preschoolers

Drip Painting Pumpkins with Preschoolers

My favorite craft activities are super simple, low-fuss, no-stress kinds of things we can all do together — like this drip pumpkin painting project we did last week.

Here's a pumpkin craft perfect for preschoolers I’ve seen the idea a few times on Pinterest and just knew it would be a great project we could all get involved with and have a good time in the process. What I wasn’t prepared for, was all the gorgeous drippage! Seriously, I could have stared at those swirling colors for hours, the kids too. We were mesmerized, who knew painting pumpkins could be so therapeutic.

Preshoolers will love this colorful, messy, fun pumpkin craft To make a puddle of psychedelic paint of your own, you’ll need a few of your favorite colors of craft paint, a pumpkin, a piece of cardboard and something for the pumpkin to sit on (I used a small plastic container). (We used a craft pumpkin so we could keep displaying these for years to come! Just wait till you see our next one)

To make your drip paint pumpkin, just squirt and squeeze. There’s really no wrong way to do this, but we all really enjoyed getting the paint up close to curve of the pumpkin and watching it ooze over the edge and drip down the sides!
