Easy Pumpkin Crafts for Kids fun activities grandparents grandchildren

Happy Autumn! Are you looking for some fun pumpkin activities for grandparents and grandchildren to celebrate this delightful fall season? I had a bit of fun discovering some cute and easy-looking pumpkin crafts for kids. Like this adorable pumpkin caterpillar (my guess). Or is it a snake (my oldest grandson’s guess).

Next time I visit I’ll have to bring some paint to decorate pumpkins. I thought this looked cool with the glow in the dark option. My older grandkids would definitely enjoy this set!

For my younger grandchildren, though, I always stick with washable options, like these:

 

Then again, I’m also a big fan of going with SIMPLE and EASY and that includes Halloween Pumpkin activities for grandparents and grandchildren.  I’ve found Crayola washable markers and tiny pumpkins make for a fun evening as well. My grandkids and I had a terrific time with these little pumpkins.

I was especially pleased to realize that baby wipes erased mistakes easily. Perfect for perfectionist grandkids or those on the autistic spectrum who get easily frustrated when they make a mistake. (Not to mention busy grandparents / caregivers who want to improve the smile on their pumpkin 🙂 ).

As we worked on this project, I realized it also makes for easy crafts for our beloved seniors. In fact, this is one of those activities that should even work for the elderly parents in our family with dementia. It’s very simple to do, it doesn’t matter how it looks – we’ll all love it, and it’s easy to clean up any messes for any age. Truly a sweet autumn treat for a multi-generational Sandwich Generation family to enjoy together or in smaller groups.

While grand big bro decorated and erased his pumpkin and will finish it later, grand-twins each took a different approach. Grand-twin one had fun decorating his autumn pumpkin. Then he brought an “alien” in to inspect the work.

Grand-Twin two enjoyed a very colorful approach and had a blast on all of the pumpkins surface.

Hands can get a bit messy doing this, but thanks to baby wipes and washable markers it all cleans up quite easily.

If you and your grandkids, not to mention your senior parents, also decide to indulge in these fun and easy pumpkin activities for grandparents and grandchildren be sure to take lots of photos. These will make fun fall table decorations and even better fun and sweet family memories.

  3. great idea, I think I’ll try this soon with the grands. You gotta love the washable markers. Baby wipes are amazing aren’t they?! I have undecorated little pumpkins at each place setting at the table…but I like your idea of doing this activity!
