Pumpkin Art Kids: Kids Pumpkin Painting

It's that time of the year. While the pumpkins fill the fields and even street corners, go ahead and create some pumpkin art for kids to adorn your classroom and homeschool walls. Here's a super sweet and fun pumpkin painting technique for kids for you from Sweet Tea Classroom.

First, draw two lines across the paper. Think of making an X. The lines should intersect, but they can do this anywhere on the paper. The lines can be straight, curvy, or even zigzag lines.

Then draw a shape for the pumpkin on one of the corners. You can have either a landscape or vertical picture, but the pumpkin needs to be in  a corner. Then draw a few curved lines on the pumpkin and add a stem.

 Next, break out the paints. Use only three colors: red, yellow, and black or green. All colors in the pumpkin painting need to be mixed from these colors.

Start painting. Each section of the pumpkin should be a different shade orange and each section formed by the lines should be a different color--white is fine too.

 You then should paint the black or green outlines on the painting. Follow the lines and pumpkin outline from earlier.

Then choose two of the colored sections and create a dark pattern on top of it.  Woo-hoo, you've done it. Enjoy your super sweet and easy pumpkin painting.
