This puffy pumpkin craft is a fun, sensory art experience that will help keep autumn in full swing!

An Activity for Preschoolers:
Make some adorable puffy pumpkins for autumn with this fun, sensory art experience!

Goals:

•To explore tactile properties of the squishy paint mixture

•To express creativity and make a fun autumn craft

Before You Start:
For each child, prepare one cup of shaving cream, one squirt of orange Colorations® paint, a few squirts of school glue in small bowls. Set out facial tissues, construction paper (for background) and brown pipe cleaners.

Furthermore:
Colorations® foam paint can also be used instead of the paint and shaving cream mixture. Children can also make their pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween! Simply pre-cut tissues into a variety of shapes for dipping into the paint mixture and place onto the pumpkins to form the jack-o-lantern face.
