Little Pumpkin Kid’s Handprint Fall Cards

Here’s an easy fall craft to make with kids and give to someone you love!  Or keep it for yourself!  (Or make several – they turn out so cute.)

This fall craft is SO easy.  I just did a handprint in orange and then a single finger print (the entire finger) for the pumpkin stem.  Cut them out, glue them on construction paper, and you have an adorable card!  I was able to handle Jonathan’s handprint myself (he’s 3.5 years), but I had to have my husband help with Janie (16 months).  He held her arm still while I painted her hand, and then we worked together to get a clear print.  It was totally worth it!

This is what I did with the inside of the card.

Jonathan’s cutting skills are still pretty limited and Janie is a toddler, so I made the cards myself.  If you were doing this project with 4 or 5 year old’s they would be able to do more of the card assembly themselves.  Either way, it’s a great keepsake!

This black crayon and watercolor leaf art is one of my FAVORITES! For younger kids, you can do the crayon rubbing part and let them do the painting. Older kids can do it all.

    These are so sweet! I love handprint art, and I've never seen any Halloween prints quite as cute as these. I'd be honored it if you posted this on our new Made for Kids link party that just launched yesterday. #made4kids

    What type of paint is used in this project?

    1. Karolyn Sep 25, 2015

      I used temper paint that my work orders that is safe for kids ,

      We used Crayola washable paint. Any tempera paint would work and wash off easily!

    I love handmade cards and this one is perfect for fall!! What a great card to give to friends and family around Thanksgiving, too. My daughter and I will be making one of these cards for her Sunday School teachers :-) I loved this idea so much that I featured it in my recent blog post: Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas!

    Hey Sarah! This looks like the perfect activity for my kids :) Have been making a list of things I can do with them in the spirit of Halloween and this is definitely going at the top of my list. Thanks so much for sharing!
