23 Adorable Pumpkin Crafts For Kids For The Fall

I know that I may be a little premature in my excitement, but my favorite season begins next month and I couldn’t be happier. I adore the fall & I feel the same way about fall crafts. This week we made our first pumpkin craft of the year. We made some simple cupcake liner pumpkins. We glued our liners down to a piece of paper with a glue stick & drew in our stems with markers.

Pasta Jack-O-Lantern Craft


As much as fall is my favorite season, Halloween is my favorite holiday. Halloween is next week & we are looking forward to taking Mai trick or treating. I wanted to let her choose her own costume this year. I asked her several times & her answer has always been the same. “I want to be a Jack-o-lantern, mama.” Our daughter loves pumpkins & Jack-o-lanterns, so next week our daughter will proudly strut the streets as the cutest Jack-o-lantern ever to say “Trick or Treat”.

Until then, we can have a little fun making our Halloween crafts in anticipation.
