We are in full on all things pumpkin and Fall mode here at our house. I’m telling you, as soon as the pumpkin flavored foods start showing up on grocery shelves, I’m all about Fall! This week I got Moreaya in on the crafting and we made pumpkin paintings from DIY Apple Stamps.
Have you ever painted with DIY stamps? When I worked in childcare, we often made our own stamps out of potatoes and apples are another fun way for kids to get creative with painting. And painting is one craft that my girls will do any time they can get me to agree. Don’t get me wrong, I love that they love to paint and be creative, but sometimes, it can get so messy!
Of course, when you’re painting apples orange and then your finger green, it’s bound to get messy! Thankfully I picked up this multi-pack of WaterWipes on a recent trip to Walgreens.
Even though we’re out of the “baby” stages of life, I still find myself using baby wipes weekly. They make the perfect easy clean-up tool in the car when we’re on the go and the perfect compliment to pumpkin paintings and crafting at our house. While there are a ton of wipe choices in the baby aisle at Walgreens, I choose WaterWipes because they’re a chemical free baby wipe that literally only contain TWO ingredients – 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract.
While they don’t contain any potentially harmful chemicals, they are still just as effective and durable as those wipes that do, making them an easy choice for my family.
If your little one is ready to get crafting, let them get to work with these Pumpkin Paintings! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Orange and Green Paint
- Apple, cut in half. Reserve the other half for a quick after-craft snack!
Paint the inside half of the apple orange. Then do a bit of finger painting with the green to make your pumpkin’s stem. Be sure to pick up a package of WaterWipes for easy crafting clean up!
