Pumpkin Painting with Toilet Paper Rolls

We had a little extra time this week, the girls were off school Monday for Columbus Day. Which gave us the perfect opportunity to try out a few of those 'fun Halloween crafts for kids' that I have been collecting on Pinterest.

This craft required only a few supplies and we had them all on hand. I pinned this craft via "MakeIt-LoveIt.com", click over to her site to see a more detailed tutorial. She has a great blog!

-2 toilet paper rolls
-hot glue

I made the 'Pumpkin Stamp' by nesting one toilet paper roll inside the other. To get the inner roll to fit, I cut it length-wise and rolled it into a 'football shape'. I used a few drops of hot glue to secure it inside the outer toilet paper roll. Then we began stamping. A little green paint was added to make a little stem.

 My littlest tried the stamp, but decided she would rather make her own pumpkins. She loves getting to paint with a brush. This is her version of '5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Fence'. We didn't have any canvases, so I just cut up a pizza box (from last night's dinner!) and let them paint on the white side. Bonus points for recycling!!

My third grader was happy to use the stamp. She made a pumpkin patch at night. Reminds me of "Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin".

I love the Halloween season. We'll be trying out a few more 'Pumpkin Crafts' before the month is over. Looking for ideas??--> come on over to my Pinterest board or follow @craftytexasgirl on Instagram.
